Abstract

SUMMARY: Erythritol stimulated the growth of virulent strains of more than that of attenuated strains. No similar correlation existed between virulence and response to erythritol with strains of B. and B. ; these were stimulated indiscriminately by erythritol.

Erythritol was not detected in extracts of bovine white blood cells and hence is unlikely to be connected with the primary invasive process of intraphagocytic survival and growth of B. . However, ultrafiltrates from extracts of bovine white blood cells stimulated the growth of B. in laboratory media.
