The subject of this investigation was the staphylococcal substance which we now call enterotoxin and which we know to be responsible for staphylococcal food poisoning in man. The immunological response of animals to this substance, as well as the exceptional heat resistance of the enterotoxin, indicates that it is indeed quite different from other known bacterial exotoxins. It was hoped that this study of some of the physical and chemical properties of the enterotoxin would help to explain those differences and also yield information about the chemical nature of the toxin itself.
