Abstract
Two separate studies are conducted to determine the incidence of antibodies to different isolates of the thermophilic actinomycetes in patients with farmer's lung. Micropolyspora-faeni accounts for slightly more than one-half of the sensitization, but sensitivity to more than one antigen is also seen. The most frequent combination is M-faeni and Thermomonospora-viridis. It also appears that Thermoactinomyces-vulgaris strains differ in antigenicity. Three strains of T-vulgaris tested differ, and currently all are in use as test reagents. The recommendation is made that testing for farmer's lung, particularly on a screening basis, include as a minimum, M- faeni, T-vulgaris (3 strains), T-viridis, Thermoactinomyces- sacchari, and the "air conditioner microorganism."
