A method for a simple preparation of Salmonella flagellar antigen is described. The antigen is sufficiently pure to elicit high titered H antibodies of 12,800-51,200 and O titers of less than 50. Highly motile Salmonella test strains are grown on 0.8% swarm agar and harvested with 0.05 n HCl which solubilizes the flagella. The suspension with a pH of 1.5 is kept at 4 degrees C. over night and then centrifuged at 49,000 g for 60 min. The supernatant is neutralized and precipitated with ammonium sulfate at 2/3 saturation. The resulting polymeric flagellin is submitted to a zone electrophoresis on Pevikon. Strips are cut from the "cake" and eluted. The H antigen is found on the anodic side, the O antigen remains near the trough or migrates slightly cathodically. Form 20 plates enough flagellin is collected fro the immunization of 50-100 rabbits. The Latex test proved to be especially suited for the checking of the H antigen.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.
