Abstract

Immunopotentiating water-soluble substances were obtained from delipidated cells of Corynebacterium parvum (strain Prévot). The immunostimulant and adjuvant activities of a crude water-soluble extract and of a low molecular-weight purified fraction were demonstrated by different techniques.
