Abstract

SUMMARY

Parenteral administration of antiserum usually prevented pigs developing diarrhoea or oedema disease after experimental oral infection with entero-pathogenic strains of , provided the antiserum had been prepared against the strain of used to produce the infection. The protection appeared to be principally bactericidal in nature. The antisera might also have had a protective effect against oedema disease that was not strain-specific, presumably by neutralising the metabolites of that cause this disease.
