Hi George T.,

I know, that the O1-phage is used for diagnosis of all Salmonella spezies.
In Germany, there we have a national reference center for Salmonella 
at Institut fuer oeffentlichen Verbraucherschutz und Veterinaermedizin, 
Wernigerode. Phages are available there. If you are interested in, I 
look for the adress and mail it to you. I also have an articel from 1966
(Annales immunologiae hungaricae 9/1966) in german language about the
prophylaxis of dysentery caused by Shigella spezies with the help of 
There is written, that phages were used to treat illnesses before 
were found in Germany and Soviet Union. Grunow and Koehler found a lot of
phages in faeces of healthy men, which attacked Salmonella, Shigella and 
Escherichia spezies. In the articel, there you can find some other names 
years, which are related to the use of phages. I hope this helps.

Mit Gruss and 55
