Types of Haemolytic Streptococci in Relation to Scarlet Fever

  • Fred Griffith (a1)

Extract

The analysis of a series of haemolytic streptococci of scarlatinal origin by agglutinin absorption experiments has revealed the existence of three chief types. Among 81 strains from scarlatinal throats 37 have been shown to belong to one or other of the three types; 12 have been classified as Type 1, 14 as Type 2 and 11 as Type 3. In addition, two strains have been found which absorbed the agglutinin from both Types 1 and 3 sera.
