    Cortisone, EDTA, and antifreeze all enhance the growth of Chlamydia
pneumoniae in vitro. What is the correct grouping term for all three

    Human spit and calf serum (whatever that is) inhibit C. pneumoniae's
growth. What is the grouping term for growth inhibitors?

    Thanks for your help on this and all of my previous dumb questions.
