Abstract

Summary: The bacteriostatic effect of specific antiserum on type A was profoundly influenced by the pH and E of the medium. With suitable concentrations of specific antiserum relatively high pH and E values led to a well-marked inhibition of growth accompanied by destruction of the bacteria. A relatively low pH or E led to a decrease or abolition of the inhibitory power of the specific antiserum. Neither complement nor properdin appeared to be involved in the bacteriostatic effect.
