Abstract:

Staphylococcal delta-toxin has antigenic and immunogenic activity, although it obviously is a relatively weak antigen. Antibodies to delta-toxin discovered with Hoigners reaction, the ring precipitation test, precipitation in gel, did not neutralize the hemolytic activity of delta-toxin, but had precipitating properties. Antibodies to delta-toxin were discovered in the sera of nonimmunized rabbits.
