SUMMARY

Antisera were produced against the most prevalent Campylobacter strains 'LA 4', LA 12', 'LA 36', 'LA 53, LA 78 and 'LA 1214' isolated and identified in Lagos, Nigeria. A total of two hundred other Campylobacter strains were screened using the six antisera produced to determine their serogrouping, Eight (4.08) of the strains reacted positively with antiserum raised against strain LA 4", seventy-seven (38,58) with antiserum raised against strain 'LA 36"; eleven (5,5%) reacted with the antiserum raised against strain LA 789 while forty-six (23.04), fifty-five (27.58) and three (1.58) were positive with antisera raised against strains 'LA 534; "LA 1214' and 'LA 12' in that order.

Antiserum raised against strain "LA 36 was injected into different sets of rabbits for the purpose of producing Campylobacter anti-antibody (anti-Campylobacter antibody). Results obtained showed that Campylobacter anti-antibody when injected into rats experimentally protected them against Campylobacter jejuni Infection.
