Abstract

L. pneumophila avirulent strains have been shown to lose their capacity for multiplication in T. pyriformis, while the concentration of the virulent strain increases 1000-fold. The loss of the hemolytic activity of L. pneumophila virulent strain leads to the loss of its capacity for multiplication in infusorians.
