Abstract:

The points of attack of staphylococcal enterotoxin on sensitive animals are poorly known. The mechanism of action of the enterotoxin in provoking the gastroenteric syndrome has not yet been clarified sufficiently to say whether it is in the form of a stimulus of the central nervous system, or a peripheric stimulus at the level of the gastric and intestinal mucous. A series of tests and experiments was started using an enterotoxin marked with various radioisotopes, in an attempt to contribute to the study of this problem. The report refers to the results achieved when using enterotoxin marked with I 131.
