Abstract

Summary

Cross-reactivity in the delayed hypersensitivity response to mycobacteria of different Runyon groups was tested in Swiss white mice immunised with live mycobacteria. All the strains tested gave cross-reactions and, generally, slow growers gave stronger cross-reactions with other slow growers than with rapid growers and . Sonicates of cross-reacting mycobacteria were also tested for their ability to generate activated macrophages in mice immunised with . All the mycobacterial sonicates generated activated macrophages but a sonicate of did not. The sonicate of H37Rv also generated activated macrophages, which indicates that there might be protective cross-reactions between and atypical mycobacteria.
