Earlier communications from this laboratory1, 2, 3, 4, 5 recorded the partition of staphylococci into two specific groups, which were designated as Types A and B. The differentiation of the types was established primarily by immunological and chemical differences between the intracellular polysaccharides extracted from the respective organisms, and secondarily by the biological distinction that Type A strains are derived from pathogenic conditions, while Type B strains are apparently saprophytic. Other workers6, 7 8, 9 have since confirmed these observations and have, in fact, even discovered additional types among the non-pathogenic strains.6, 9 At a later date,10 the determination of
