Abstract:

Serologic reactions were performed using hyperimmune rabbit antisera and antigenic preparations of L. buccalis, F. fusiforme, and F. polymorphum. All tests indicated that there was serologic cross reactivity between the two Fusobacterium species. No cross reactivity could be detected between the Fusobacterium species and L. buccalis. The findings suggest that F. fusiforme and F. polymorphum are similar in their immunogenicity, and that the recent grouping of these organisms as F. nucleatum is justified. Author
