Abstract

SUMMARY

By gel-diffusion precipitin and absorption tests six antigens were identified in group D streptococci of human oral origin that were common to ; four of these were common also to , and three to the -form of a group A streptococcus. No cross-reactions were obtained with or C. . These antibodies occurred in commercial Streptococcus and Haemophilus typing sera, but not in enterobacterial agglutinating sera.

It should be concluded that the genus and are more closely related to the genus than to the genus .
