Abstract

The in-vitro effect of EDTA-Tris-lysozyme solution on 16 pathogenic bacteria of medical or veterinary importance was determined. Marked decreases in bacterial count occurred with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Moraxella osloensis and Campylobacter fetus, and smaller decreases with Salmonella typhimurium, Shigella boydii, Aeromonas hydrophila, Proteus mirabilis, Listeria monocytogenes and Erysipelothrix insidiosa. The test solution had no effect on Klebsiella ozaenae, Brucella canis, Corynebacterium pyogenes, Coryne. renale, Streptococcus equi and Staphylococcus aureus.
