Abstract

SUMMARY: Normal rabbit sera contain a factor that, in conjunction with a heat labile component of guinea-pig or foetal calf serum, prevented the growth of human and other -mycoplasmas but had little or no effect on bovine -mycoplasmas examined. Susceptibility of human strains to the action of this substance was altered by growth in different media. The possibility that the factor might be antibody is discussed.
