After getting out no one of the victims was able to be in the hot sun for several days, and even yet (about ten days after the poisoning) the heat affects myself.

Page 456 - ... earlier. The production of the ptomaine is, in all probability, due, either directly or indirectly, to the growth of some micro-organism. In the cheese Dr. Sternberg found a new micrococcus ; but whether or not there is any relation between this organism and the poison remains to be determined. In the cheese, milk, and cream, in all of which I have found the poison, there was present more or less butyric acid, and it may be that there is some intimate relation between butyric acid fermentation...
Page 456 - I took two samples, of one pint each, from a bottle of milk which had already undergone the lactic acid fermentation. These samples were placed in clean glass graduates. To one, a piece of the solid portion of the poisonous custard, about the size of a filbert, and which had been washed with distilled water, was added. To the other no addition was made. These samples stood side by side for forty-eight hours. Both were then tested for tyrotoxicon. The one to which no addition was made gave no crystals,...
