Abstract

Analysis with anti- BCG and anti-. Ravenel sera, absorption tests with anti-η antibody, and the failure to detect any factor that affected η antigenic activity in . BCG or strain H37Ra confirmed the absence of η precipitinogen in . BCG and Ravenel. No η-positive strains were found among 7 strains of . , 19 representative strains of 15 mycobacterial species other than and or 13 niacin-negative strains of mycobacteria isolated from patients. However, η activity was detected in all 9 laboratory strains of . tested, including virulent and avirulent strains, and in 29 of 30 niacin-positive strains isolated from patients, including 15 strains with single or multiple resistance to seven drugs.
