Page 61 - ... varies not only in different individuals, but in the same individual at different times.
Page 182 - ... when no tuberculous process exists. The adoption of an initial dose so small as to guard against the absolute possibility of producing violent reactionary symptoms, and the graded increase of the subsequent doses within such quantities as are known never to produce reaction in healthy individuals, would seem to afford the best protection against unpleasant results and misleading evidence.
Page 184 - A typical gonococcus reaction is characterized by a rise in temperature, often only slight . . . and a variable degree of malaise. The symptoms follow the injection in from eight to twelve hours and commonly last about twenty-four hours. Frequently there is a decided tenderness at the site of the injection, greater than occurs after the inoculation of the same dose of the same preparation in normal subjects. Occasionally there is a marked redness and edema, lasting from twentyfour to forty-eight...
Page 163 - As soon as the instrument entered the eye, a yellow coloured fluid immediately escaped, sufficient in quantity to wet a common handkerchief quite through. The needle was continued in the eye about a minute, in order to give the fluid a more ready way to come, out ; and as soon as it was withdrawn the discharge ceased.

If a chill occurs, it will usually take place from one-half to three hours after the injection. The smallest dose from which...
Page 186 - TODD, FRANK C., of Minneapolis, Minn., reports one case of chronic hordeoli, with pustules on the face and eczema around the nostrils. The patient had been treated for this .condition from time to time for five years. Hypodermic injections of an autogenic vaccine of staphylococcus aureus were followed by complete recovery.
Page 302 - In interpreting the result complete inhibition of haemolysis comparable with the positive control is called strongly positive; complete haemolysis, comparable with the negative control, is designated as a negative reaction. If 60 to 70 per cent. of the bulk of corpuscles is dissolved the reaction is doubtful and should not be taken into consideration for diagnosis. In a known specific case such slight inhibition should be an indication for further treatment as evidence of the continued presence of...
Page 244 - Fournier has drawn from his immense clinical experience seem to me of enough value to the pcdiatrist to be repeated here. 1. Specific treatment is indicated in all cases in which the patients are actually affected by lesions or symptoms which might be due to syphilis and who show at least one of the stigmata mentioned. 2.
