Bacterial endotoxins behave like toxic substances for mammals. In animals whose death they have caused, lesions express an attack on the vessels through edema, congestion, and hemorrhages. In all likelihood, these lesions are not secondary to a direct change in the walls of the vessels by the endotoxin. They are, rather, the work of an excessive reaction by the organism in contact with the poison.
