Abstract

The organism settled in the intestines of all of the mice inoculated at a dose of 10^7 to 10^9 cells. However, most of the serum 0 agglutinin detected was as low as 1 : 40,and the highest titer reached was 1 : 80. In some mice, the organism continued to colonize in the gut and to produce serum agglutinin. These results suggested that the serum antibody did not affect the termination of the fecal excretion. After second inoculation, no excretion of the organism was observed in any of the 4 mice in which the excretion of the first inoculation in the feces had already been terminated.
