Abstract

SUMMARY: The preparation, purification and properties of cholera toxin type 2 are described. When the toxin was given to experimental animals it induced a high level of toxin-neutralizing antibodies. Cholera toxoid given to human volunteers induced antibodies consisting of agglutinins, vibriocidal and toxin-neutralizing antibodies. The relevant titres depended on the purity of the antigen administered.
