The Soluble Specific Substance of Pneumococcus
Description:
Avery's research on the specific soluble substance, or SSS, was an attempt to identify the substance that was responsible for the specific immunological reactions produced in pneumonia patients. Here, Avery and Heidelberger detailed their efforts to obtain pure samples of SSS and hypothesized that the substance consisted primarily of carbohydrates, rather than a protein, which was then believed to be the only substance that could stimulate antibody production. This article was published six years after an article written with Alphonse Dochez on SSS. The collaboration between Avery and Heidelberger initiated a line of research that yielded two articles, and after Heidelberger left for Mount Sinai Hospital in 1924, several by Avery with Walther Goebel and F.H. Babers in the late 1920s.
