Immune Response to Anaerobic Wound Infections
The increased knowledge of anaerobic bacteria, their occurrence, cultivation and identification has raised the question of their pathologic significance. The engagement of immunological defense mechanisms in anaerobic infections is, therefore, of great interest. Many severe infections associated with Bacteroides fragilis have been described, and there are a number of reports concerning the antibody response to these bacteria.
