Abstract

The studies here reported show that the filtrate factor of Vibrio cholerae, a good antigenic agent for the production of antimucinase, can be incorporated in stabile form in a cholera vaccine. Evidence presented here showed that the enzyme responsible for the dissolution of ovomucin is dissimilar antigenically to the heat-stable agglutinogens of the vibrio. Methods for the evaluation of antimucinase were presented.
