The close agreement between the specific precipitating power of the serum, prepared by the injection of suspensions and cultures of the hemolytic streptococcus from scarlet fever, and the antitoxic serum, prepared by the injection of filtrates or toxin of scarlatinal hemolytic streptococci, suggests that sufficient bacterial substance goes into solution in their cultures to make their antitoxic serum suitable for the diagnostic precipitin reaction.
