Abstract

SUMMARY

The pathogenicity of 40 strains of and was investigated in chickens, rabbits, guinea-pigs, mice and calves. Myco-bactin dependence and serological type were also determined. There was no evidence that mycobactin dependence was related to pathogenicity. Antigenic similarities were demonstrated between and , and one isolate had the pathogenic characteristics of both species.
