Experimental infection of mice with Candida albicans leads
to significant suppression of cell mediated immune responses.
We have characterized the nature of this candida-induced
suppression with formalin killed Candida albicans (FKCA) in the
yeast and mycelia' phase. Mice (BALB/c or C57B1/6J) treated
with FKCA exhibited a reduction in the T-cell...
Many methods in use today for the isolation, purification, and
identification of the staphylococcal enterotoxins involve lengthy
steps with significant loss of enterotoxin, are subject to interference
from contaminating sample components, and lack sufficient specificity.

aureus strains (enterotoxins A-E), crude enterotoxin preparations
