Author: KOURY, MC

Abstract: Methanol extracts were obtained from L. interrogans serovars icterohaemorrhagiae and canicola and L biflexa serovar patoc. Human sera from 167 normal individuals and 40 patients with different infectious diseases tested by complement fixation tests showed negative reactions. Sera from 100 patients with a suspicion of leptospirosis were tested by complement fixation tests and microscopic agglutination reactions. Agreement of 84% was found for those two reactions. Positive microscopic agglutination tests at a dilution 1:20-1:400 with negative complement fixation tests were observed in 5% of patients and negative microscopic agglutination with complement fixation tests in the range of 1:20-1:1280 were observed in 11% of the cases.
