The lecithinase and protease of Pseudomonas aeruginosa have been separated in order to observe their specific effects on animals. Lecithinase appeared to be responsible for edema and induration of the skin, while protease elicited hemorrhagic and necrotic lesions. Following intraperitoneal and/or intravenous injection lecithinase caused primarily necrosis of the liver, while protease produced hemorrhagic lesions of intestines and lungs.
