Abstract:

CONCLUSIONS An experimental model of a kinetically stable aerosol of beta-hemolytic streptococcus was obtained. Blood serum and gelatin had a protective effect on beta-hemolytic streptococcus in the experimental aerosol. A low temperature 4 degrees aided the survival of beta-hemolytic streptococcus in the experimental aerosol. Viability of beta-hemolytic streptococcus, protected by gelatin in Ringer-Lockes liquid, in the bacterial cloud did not depend on the relative humidity of air.
