It has been suggested that some factor present in human plasma binds to Shiga toxin 2 (Stx2) and neutralizes it in vitro (Bitzan, M., Klemt, M., Steffens, R., and Muller-Wiefel, D. E. (1993) Infection 21, 140-145). This factor does not exist in other species (Caprioli, A., Luzzi, I., Seganti, L., Marchetti, M., Karmali, M., Clarke, I., and Boyd, B. (1994) Recent Adv.
