Abstract

The growth of and in laboratory media was inhibited by several analogues of erythritol. The use of erythritol analogues in this manner was suggested by previous work on the localization of brucellas in brucellosis. The growth of within bovine phagocytes was inhibited by analogues of erythritol under conditions in which streptomycin was ineffective. Although selected erythritol analogues did not eliminate brucellosis in guinea pigs, they produced a significant diminution in infection and showed no toxicity to the host.
