Abstract:

Bacterial allergy has an important role in the pathogenesis of many infectious diseases. Determination of heightened sensitivity of the organism to various microbe species is hampered by the absence of unified methods of producing qualitatively heterogenic preparations which are applicable for diagnosis of bacterial allergy. In connection with this the question of the biochemical decoding of allergens, identifying localization of the active principle in a certain chemical substance, and the possibility of isolating it in pure form represent substantial theoretical and practical interest. Investigations of the chemical composition of allergens from Streptococcus hemolyticus are reported.
