Page 10 - It is justifiable to assume that if 60° C. for twenty minutes is sufficient to destroy the infectiveness of such milk when injected into the peritoneal cavity of a guinea pig, any ordinary market milk after such treatment would be safe for human use by the mouth so far as tubercle bacilli are concerned.
Page 164 - The experimental researches of the author show the following: 1. Flies caught in the open air do not contain any acid-fast bacilli that could be mistaken for the bacillus of Koch. 2. Flies that have been fed on sputum evacuate considerable quantities of bacilli in their excretions. The bacilli appear six hours after ingestion of the sputum, and some may be found as long as five days later. These flies, therefore, have plenty of time to carry these bacilli to a great distance, and to contaminate food...
Page 194 - ... cattle, it was much increased by the successive intravenous inoculations to which they were subjected. The immunity was not absolute, but it may be doubted whether a degree of resistance that will merit this term is obtainable by any method in cattle.
Page 195 - Cases in which injury are said to have resulted from it may have been due to other concomitant affections, among which pneumonia is probably the most common. Persons trying vaccination should first assure themselves that the culture they intend to use belongs to the human and not to the bovine type...
Page 13 - Hazen's theorem asserts that for every death from typhoid fever avoided by the purification of a polluted public water supply two or three deaths are avoided from other causes.
Page 35 - Cambridge. sputum, in daylight and in free currents of air is rapidly deprived of virulence ; (2) That even in the dark, although the action is retarded, fresh air has still some disinfecting influence : and (3) That in the absence of air. or in confined air, the bacillus retains its power for long periods of time.
Page 197 - Looked at from the point of view of the bacterium, as well as from that of the animal host, according to the hypothesis advanced, the struggle between the bacteria and the body cells in infections may be conceived as an immunizing contest in which each participant is stimulated by its opponent to the production of cytotoxins hostile to the other, and thereby endeavors to make itself immune against its antagonist.

Page 489 - It is also noteworthy that fully 70 per cent. of persons healed in the clinical sense from two to thirty years reacted positively. The chief interest relates to the clinically incipient (71.4 per cent., positive) and suspected cases (33.3 per cent., positive), where the test would be expected to assist in diagnosis. The results fall considerably short of the requirements for an ideal diagnostic method in suspected tuberculosis, though relatively good in confirmation of the clinically tuberculous...
