Abstract:

A brief discussion is presented of an invention concerned with methods of obtaining tetanic allergen from killed bacterial cells. In contrast to existing methods, the proposed method involves centrifuging a culture of the tetanus bacillus on a liquid medium, washing it with a solution of table salt, autoclaving it, drying it, grinding it into a powder, and treating it with a liquid extractant, for example a solution of acetic acid. Such a procedure for obtaining the preparation makes it possible to increase its specificity.
