Abstract

SUMMARY:

The antigenic structure of (Gardner & Dukes, Edmunds, and Amies & Jones strains) was compared by means of gel-diffusion preciptin reactions with that of and (Laughton). (Amies & Jones) was closely related to and formed a group with related species; (Gardner & Dukes) and formed separate groups; but all three groups possessed common antigenic components.

These strains of bacteria are among those reported as being related to and their antigenic relationships are thus of importance in this connexion.
