COMBINED ACTION AND POTENTIATION OF CLOSTRIDIUM TOXINS
ARMY FOREIGN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY CENTER CHARLOTTESVILLE VA
If previously mixed and held at 37C for 45 min Clostridium perfringens and Cl. histolyticum become more toxic. This shows up as depression of the absorptive function of the liver and spleen reticulo-endothelial system and increase in hemolytic and lethal effect. This may explain the high incidence of fatalities in gas infections from these bacteria.
