Summary: To initiate an investigation into the biochemistry and mechanism of group B β-hemolytic Streptococcus virulence, bacterial cultures grown in suspension were centrifuged, and the bacteria and media were subjected to extensive fractionation. Each fraction was assayed for physiologic activity by repeated intravenous infusion into adult unanesthetized sheep. Pulmonary artery pressure, arterial Po2, and rectal temperature were monitored. The media fraction, but not the bacteria, contained a… CONTINUE READING
