differentiation of bcg from other variants of mycobacterium tuberculosis isolated from clinical isolated from clinical material may be reliably differentiated from other variants within the species mycobacterium tuberculosis by means of a few simple cultural and biochemical tests and by bacteriophage typing. animal pathogenicity tests may therefore be avoided.197898878
[antitumor activity of the bacterial walls of br. abortus 99].a brief chronologic survey is made of investigations that reveal that the bacterial cell walls and their chemical components exhibit antitumoral activity. discussed is the problem which are the constituents of the bacterial wal and what is the mechanism through which such effects are produced. the conclusion is drawn that some peptides participating in the structure of the bacterial wall after their release in body stimulate the macrophages and thus confer antitumoral activity to them.197898899
delayed hypersensitivy and experimental interstitial pneumonitis.the effects of prior sensitization with killed h37ra tubercle bacilli on the pulmonary reaction to intravenous (iv) challenge with complete freund's adjuvant (cfa) have been studied and were compared to reactions in nonsensitized cfa-challenged controls. rabbits that died within 24 hours of challenge demonstrated acute arteritis prior to granuloma formation. sensitized rabbits had a greater number of exudative cells in the pulmonary lavage fluid and a larger volume of parenchymal infiltrate than ...197899116

depression of protective mechanisms against microörganisms in tumor-bearing mice and its restoration by adjuvants.bacterial growth within 72 hr after an intravenous inoculation with listeria monocytogenes was enhanced strikingly in the liver of mice, when viable cells of sarcoma-180 were injected subcutaneously into ddn, c3h/he, and balb/c mice 5 hr before the inoculation. such an enhanced bacterial growth appears to be attributable to a depressed ability of macrophages to digest engulfed bacteria. pretreatments with zymosan, killed bcg, or viable bcg prevented such depression in tumor-bearing mice and incr ...197799344

tuberculosis infection and the repeat test. effect in bcg-vaccinated guinea pigs.groups of bcg-vaccinated guinea pigs were infected with mycobacterium tuberculosis and the course of tuberculin reactions before and after was studied. the infection led to reactions that were accelerated as if repeated tests had been given, but were larger than in such cases. acceleration of reactions due to previous testing was present 1 week, but not 4 weeks after the start of the infection. possibly, in cellular immunity in general, absence of the repeat test effect may be interpreted as a s ...197899809
