Abstract

SUMMARY

Complement-fixation tests were used to compare strains of var. (5 strains), . var. (5 strains) and . of bovine genital origin (3 strains). Strains of . and . showed cross-reactions of about 25% identity, but strains of . appeared to be antigenically distinct. The results, measured in terms of the amounts of complement fixed, are shown graphically and discussed in relation to the diagnosis of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia.
