The microbiological tumour test is based on the detection of humoral antibodies to clostridial rods following intravenous injection of apathogenic clostridial spores. As serological methods we used the complement fixation test with a simultaneous short-time warm and long-time cold incubation as well as the passive haemagglutination test after absorption of clostridial group-specific antibodies. The evaluation of titre dynamics was rendered difficult by normal clostridial antibodies, by… CONTINUE READING
