Abstract

SUMMARY

Purified lipopolysaccharide (LPS) obtained from isolates of ss. and impaired fetal development when administered to mice on day 13 of pregnancy. Strikingly more fetal resorption was produced by LPS than by similar amounts of ss. LPS. Three of the four strains examined produced LPS that had no effect on maternal health, but LPS from one strain killed all of the mice to which it was administered.
