Die Form der Pneumokokkenpneumonie — eine Funktion des Hyaluronidasegehaltes der Pneumokokken
- 10 Downloads
The spreading factor and the hyaluronidase content of 20 different strains of pneumococci belonging to various types were investigated. A comparison of the results with the magnitude of the pneumonic infiltrations leads to the conclusion that the hyaluronidase content is almost entirely responsible for the form of the pneumonic lesion. A new method for the measuring of the hyaluronidase is given.
