Abstract

FOUR laboratories have collaborated to isolate and identify mycoplasmas from the pharyngeal and lower urogenital tissues of the African green monkey. Seventy mycoplasmas were isolated from fifty-two of 142 specimens obtained from seventy-one monkeys. Most of the simian mycoplasmas isolated were similar or identical to Mycoplasma species previously isolated only from man.
