Abstract

Abstract Enterotoxin and cytotoxin production of 10 strains of Campylobacter spp. were examined by ELISA and HeLa cells assay, respectively. Both toxins were produced in high concentrations by strains freshly isolated from patients. The maximum enterotoxin activity was found to be at 24 h after incubation, at which time cell growth reached the stationary phase. On the other hand, production of cytotoxin increased after the logarithmic phase of the growth.
