The high natural resistance of gonococci showing a characteristic 'double highlight' (DH) colonial morphology (Penn, Veale & Smith, 1977b) to intracellular killing by human phagocytes was markedly reduced by addition of rabbit antiserum to the phagocytosis medium or by preincubation of organisms with antiserum. Antisera raised to three different DH gonococcal strains showed a complex pattern of specificity in phagocytosis tests with the homologous organisms and three other DH strains. The… CONTINUE READING
