1.  Absence of Mycoplasma Contamination in the Anthrax Vaccine 
Emerging Infectious Diseases  2002;8(1):94-96.
Mycoplasma contamination of the licensed anthrax vaccine administered to military personnel has been suggested as a possible cause of Persian Gulf illness. Vaccine samples tested by nonmilitary laboratories were negative for viable mycoplasma and mycoplasma DNA and did not support its survival. Mycoplasma contamination of anthrax vaccine should not be considered a possible cause of illness.

2.  Isolation and Characterization of Mycoplasma conjunctivae sp. n. from Sheep and Goats with Keratoconjunctivitis 
Infection and Immunity  1972;5(1):70-76.
Fourteen conjunctival strains of mycoplasma were isolated from infected sheep and goats in two separate naturally occurring outbreaks of keratoconjunctivitis (pink-eye). The biological and serological properties and cell protein patterns of these strains are presented in this report. These strains were related to each other and were unrelated to 40 recognized Mycoplasma and Acholeplasma species and serotypes. We are proposing that this group of mycoplasmas be named M. conjunctivae. The role of M. conjunctivae in the etiology of keratoconjunctivitis in sheep and goats remains to be determined.

3.  Proposal for Classifying Strain PG-24 and Related Canine Mycoplasmas as Mycoplasma edwardii sp. n 
Journal of Bacteriology  1970;101(2):346-349.
Mycoplasmas recovered recently from dogs were found unrelated to three classified canine Mycoplasma serotypes but were similar in biological and serological properties to a Mycoplasma strain (C21, PG-24) isolated 18 years earlier. It is proposed that strains with the characteristics described be designated Mycoplasma edwardii sp. n.

4.  Immunofluorescence Identification of Mycoplasma on Agar by Use of Incident Illumination 
Journal of Bacteriology  1967;93(4):1205-1209.
The fluorescent-antibody method has been employed for the rapid identification of Mycoplasma colonies growing on agar plates. The method was found to be effective for detection of mixtures of Mycoplasma serotypes growing on primary isolation plates. The technique also helped to define the presence of mycoplasmas which did not produce typical colonies. It was also possible to identify Mycoplasma colonies overgrown by bacterial or fungal contaminants. Conjugates directed against 10 distinct Mycoplasma serotypes have been successfully employed in this system. One of the serotypes is a human oral isolate which has not been previously characterized.
