Abstract

Guinea-pig macrophages exerted no bactericidal activity against either a virulent or a saprophytic strain of leptospira during a 120 min period of contact at 37 °C. However, the same macrophages exhibited weak phagocytic powers towards these two strains of leptospira over a similar period of time.
