The Specific Polysaccharides of Types I, II, and III Pneumococcus: A Revision of Methods and Data
In this article, Heidelberger and Kendall described their method for using neutral sodium salts to separate compounds of polysaccharide
antigens of type I, II, and III pneumococcus and their homologous antibodies (an antibody specific to an antigen). Their
contribution was important because previous methods of isolation using heat, acids, or alkali had significantly changed the
results of experiments conducted with these polysaccharides.
