A total of 257 Proteus strains isolated from urinary tract infection, blood, wound and faeces were studied. Of the strains tested 31 (12 percent) were serum sensitive, 182 (71 percent) were serum resistant and the remaining 44 (17 percent) showed intermediate sensitivity to the pooled normal human serum (PNHS). Strains isolated from adult urines and blood cultures were significantly more sensitive than strains of faecal origin (p < 0.01). No significant difference was seen between strains from faeces and wounds.
