Abstract:

With an infection of a culture of listeria into rabbits or guinea pigs, the phagocytic properties of their blood is increased in relation to the pathogen of listerellosis in swine. The blood of the gilts and sheep used in the experiment did not possess phagocytic properties in relation to listeria. The experiments showed that the opsono-phagocytic reaction cannot be used for diagnostic purposes in listerellosis of swine.
