The Salmonella or paratyphoid group of bacteria has been studied extensively by Bruce White in England and by Kauffmann in Copenhagen. By means of the agglutinin absorption test these strains have been studied and classified. The number of antigens in a given specific species may be many and thus the antigenic components of the group as a whole form a complex mosaic pattern. At the State Serum Institute in Copenhagen an international Salmonella center has been established and financed by the Commonwealth Fund. This center will supply gratis to national Salmonella centers in various countries all serums and cultures necessary for serologic diagnosis. Furthermore the international Salmonella center in Copenhagen is prepared to examine doubtful cultures without charge. Kauffmann has brought up to date in this report the more recent developments in this field. This book can be recommended to laboratory workers who are attempting to classify strains of Salmonella
