The diagnosis of pneumococcal chest infection by countercurrent immuno electrophoresis

, : The diagnosis of pneumococcal chest infection by countercurrent immuno electrophoresis. Journal of Applied Bacteriology 49(3): 471-478

A simple, inexpensive method of countercurrent-immunoelectrophoresis was used to detect pneumococcal antigens in sputum, serum and pleural fluid. Antigens were detected in sputa from 69% of subjects with pneumococcal pneumonia and there was a good correlation with the certainty of the clinical diagnosis. Serum antigens were found in 12.5% of subjects with either a definite or a presumed diagnosis and in 1 case from a patient who presumably did not have pneumococcal pneumonia. The pathogenic importance of antigens in the sputa of patients with a history of chronic respiratory disease was uncertain. Countercurrent-immunoelectrophoresis was more sensitive than routine bacteriological methods of demonstraing the presence of penumococci in pleural fluids.

The separate roles of alpha- and beta-adrenergic receptors in regulating fluid and calcium (Ca) secretion by rat salivary glands were examined using phenylephrine (PE), an adrenergic agonist that acts predominantly on alpha-receptors, isoprotereno...
