  1. aM. suis antigen purified from experimentally infected animals at high bacteremia
  2. bdistinct visible reactions with M. suis antigen and absent in the control antigen purified from the blood of M. suis negative sows
  3. creaction pattern of the one immunoblot-positive sow of the control group. All other sera from the control group sows (n = 14) showed no reaction with any M. suis specific antigen and were thus not included in the table
