The Soluble Specific Substance of Pneumococcus: Third Paper
In this important article, Avery and Heidelberger continued their work on identifying the substance that caused each type
of pneumococcus to elicit a unique immune response. Here, they determined that Type I and Type II pneumococcus strains contained
chemically distinct polysaccharides, thus indicating that these unique polysaccharides were in fact the antigenic substance
that determined the different levels of virulence among types of pneumococcus.
