Abstract : Two Mycoplasma pneumoniae antigens were compared employing an indirect hemagglutination method modified to a microtiter technic. Sonic treatment of the antigen immediately prior to sensitizing erythrocytes is an important step in the procedure. The IHA test must be performed on a larger number of sera in order to evaluate its usefulness. Other commercial sources of antigen for sensitizing erythrocytes should be investigated. (Author)
