Abstract

SUMMARY

Six strains of Marchoux and Sorel have been subjected to immunodiffusion analysis. They were found to be identical with each other and to possess 12 demonstrable antigenic constituents. Five of these were antigens common to all mycobacteria, two were shared only with slow-growing mycobacterial species, three were amongst those antigens hitherto considered specific to and two were specific to alone. Thus it was concluded that is a member of the slow-growing group of mycobacteria with an exceptionally close serological relationship to .
