    Toxoid-antitoxin floccules dissolved in alkali (D.F.=dissolved floccules) was a poor antigen in guineapigs, but was greatly improved when precipitated with alum (P.D.F.) or adsorbed on aluminium phosphate (A.D.F.). Both these new prophylactics produced a satisfactory immunity in adults aged 17 to 40 years. Ninety-seven Schick-positive persons had 5 moderate reactions during immunization, and toxoid, (d) toxoid and antitoxin (T.A.M.), and (e) toxoid antitoxin floccules (Ramon) (T.A.F.). 2. Spraying of throat with toxin and antitoxin. 3. Instilling formol-toxoid into the nose. 4. Percutaneous method of applying toxin-antitoxin. Toxin itself is very unsafe to use, and it has been found advisable to use toxin modified by the addition.

    The molecular weight of diphtheria toxin is 70, and of antitoxin is , From ultracentrifuge studies on the two reactants and on mixtures of toxin and antitoxin in the soluble inhibition zones, the average molecular composition of the specific floccules at certain reference points throughout the equivalence zone and the maximum "valence. The authors prepared antisera in rabbits by the injection of washed diphtheria toxoid-antitoxin floccules, or of the washed precipitate from a mixture of Type I pneumococcal polysaccharide and an homologous anti-pneumococcal horse serum. In each case the antiserum produced gave a precipitate with normal horse serum, diphtheria antitoxin prepared in the horse, and Type I anti-pneumococcal .

    1. Formol-Toxoid (FT) diphtheria toxin is ren­dered non-toxic by formalin. The recommended dose is three intramuscular or deep subcutaneous injec­tions, each of 1 ml, at four weekly intervals. Recent studies proved it is a poor antigen. 2. Toxoid-Antitoxin floccules (TAF). FORBES, in his book, Diphtheria, Its Distribution and Prevention () Alum-toxoid, toxoid-antitoxin floccules, and toxoid alum-precipitated are three further variants devised with a view to avoiding some of the more distressing reactions of their predecessors.

' ' SUMMARY Dissolved diphtheria toxoid-antitoxin floccules precipitated with potash alum (P.D.F.) or adsorbed on aluminium phosphate (A.D.F.) form antigens that produce a satisfactory immunity in adults.

The reactions produced are much fewer and less severe than those caused by alum-precipitated toxoid or by by: 3. The preparation of diphtheria toxoid-antitoxin floccules used in this work is an efficient and rapidly immunising antigen which definitely protects against diphtheria.

Its use in adults is not commonly followed by unpleasant reactions and, with rare exceptions, in the few instances when these do occur they are of a trifling by: 6. HARTLEY (Brit. Exper. Path. v. 6, v. 7, 55) has shown that the floccules which separate from a mixture of diphtheria toxin and antitoxin form an efficient antigen for the stimulation of antitoxin formation, and that the floccules from Diphtheria toxoid-antitoxin floccules book in which the toxin is present in relative excess are more potent antigens than those from mixtures which are exactly neutralized, or Cited by: 7.

toxoid-antitoxin floccules. In this work we followed in general the procedure which Pappenheimer and Robinson had used with diphtheria toxin-antitoxin floccules. Experimental Three toxoids and three antitoxins were used. Toxoids nos. and were prepared from Martin's medium; toxoid no. was prepared from.

It is important to note, first, that the floccules are in- soluble and hence can be and are washed free of all soluble substances from the culture medium, of which crude toxin consists, and from the serummusually of the horse--of which antitoxin consists; and, sec- ond, that the various components, particularly the toxin, of the floc- cules are.
