Papers deal with all immunologic aspects of the gonococcus, including physiology, genetics, and antimicrobial susceptibility; cellular antigens and antigenic analysis; and pathogenicity and immunity. Concluding the book is the report of a panel discussion on the possibility of preventing gonorrhea by vaccine. Indexed.
