Production of the Shwartzman reaction with microbial L forms.


Study of potential pathogenicity of microbial L forms was done by the localized Shwartzman reaction. Stable L forms of Proteus mirabilis served as skin preparation in rabbits for induction of Shwartzman reaction by subsequent intravenous injection of either P. mirabilis L forms or Escherichia coli endotoxin. The intensity of the reaction was positively… (More)
