A study was made of the results of interaction interdirected processes and interconditioned reactions between the cells of the human embryo in vitro cultures and virulent and vaccine anthrax strains. Distinct differences were revealed in the behavior of virulent and vaccine bacilli in the cellular culture. In experiments with virulent anthrax bacilli a distinct action of both virulent factors was determined -- of capsule, of the toxin. At the same time data were obtained on the presence of the natural antibacterial protection mechanisms in vitro culture of human embryo cells.
