Abstract
Two strains of Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 (UH1 and RH1) were incubated in fresh human serum. The UH1 strain was serum-resistant, whereas the RH1 strain was serum-susceptible. The bactericidal activity of fresh serum was abrogated by heating. Serum resistance of L. pneumophila strains may correlate with increased virulence.
