The lethal dose of the toxins of some anaerobes for sheep

02 Jun 2017

The lethal dose of the toxins of four anaerobes has been ascertained in mice, sheep, and in two instances in guinea-pigs also. The mouse : kilogram-body-weight-sheep ratio is as follows: Cl. septique 1:17.5, Cl. welchii, Type B 1:60, Cl. welchii, Type D 1:12.5 and Cl. oedematiens 1:100. The last ratio was arrived at by the use of only six sheep and is thus approximate.
