This chapter reports the demonstration of a low molecular weight protein toxin derived from a cell-free extract of sonicated L. pnemophila. The antigenic relationship of this toxin with a similar extract, obtained from a newly discovered, but genetically unrelated, gram-negative rod termed the Pittsburgh pneumonia agent, is also shown.
