Abstract

Summary

Broth cultures of 27 strains of group-A streptococci and 39 strains of various other Lancefield groups were tested for lymphocyte-transforming activity. All the group-A strains and most of the group-C and group-G strains were strongly mitogenic. The possible significance of the mitogen in streptococcal infection is discussed.
