Abstract

SUMMARY

Culture supernates of from diarrhoea patients were tested in dog jejunal loops for thermostable (ST) and thermolabile (LT) enterotoxins. Pre-treatment with choleragenoid blocked LT but not ST. Glucose was found to reduce fluid accumulation induced by both types of enterotoxin. The findings confirm and extend previous evidence of similarities between cholera toxin and LT and differences between it and ST.
