The interaction of alimentary soya antigens and their antibodies was studied with protein A containing Staphylococcus aureus and protein G containing Streptococcus agalactiae bacteria by laser particle counter and scanning electronmicroscopy. According to the laser particle counter study the size of S. aureus bacterial aggregates reduce their size in the presence of anti-soya antibodies and soya antigens. The results of the laser particle counter measurements was supported by scanning electron microscopy. The desaggregated bacteria maintain their ability to propagate. A similar phenomenon was observed in S. aureus - anti-soya antibody - egg white antigen system. No similar reaction was observed if the system included S. agalactiae instead of S.aureus. The relationship between these interactions and the skin reactions in alimentary antigen challenges is unknown.
