Abstract

Gram-negative, asaccharolytic, agar-corroding organisms were isolated from lesions of advanced destructive periodontal disease. We grouped 78 oral isolates and reference strains of , and spp. serologically by using the microagglutination technique. The four species of oral organisms () were clearly differentiated from each other on the basis of agglutination with rabbit antisera produced against representative live organisms. Agglutination patterns showed both a lack of intergroup relatedness among the oral isolates and a lack of serological identity with the biochemically similar organisms , and .
