Abstract : Serological researches on serum and mucus in Shigellosis, Salmonellosis and other bacterial enteric infectious diseases during the period of 1 October 1962 through 31 December 1962 are summarized as follows: The cross Latex agglutination test Shigella flexneri v-x and Shigella flexneri v-y infected cases using both standard strains showed that the Latex agglutinin titers against Shigella flexneri v-y strain were higher than against Shigella flexneri v-x strain. The agglutinin titers of serum and mucus against Escherichia coli, E. aerogenes, Citrobacter, A. liquefaciens isolated from the feces of the gastroenteritis patients were mostly low except the agglutinin titer against A. liquefaciencs. The Latex agglutinin titers of serum and mucus against pathogenic halophilic vibrio-like bacilli were generally low in both serum and mucus. These strains were isolated from the feces of patients suffering from food-poisoning. (Author)
