The Significance of Pneumococcal Types
  • F. Griffith
  • Biology, Medicine
    Journal of Hygiene
  • 1 January 1928
TLDR
In the course of the examination of sputum from cases of lobar pneumonia, observations have been made on the incidence of the chief types of pneumococci, and the antigens of certain Group IV strains appear to be closely related to that of Type II.
Types of Haemolytic Streptococci in Relation to Scarlet Fever
  • F. Griffith
  • Biology, Medicine
    Journal of Hygiene
  • 1 November 1926
The analysis of a series of haemolytic streptococci of scarlatinal origin by agglutinin absorption experiments has revealed the existence of three chief types. Among 81 strains from scarlatinal
The Serological Classification of Streptococcus pyogenes
  • F. Griffith
  • Medicine, Biology
    Epidemiology and Infection
  • 1 December 1934
TLDR
The haemolytic streptococci associated with scarlet fever, tonsillitis, septic conditions, etc., belong to one group or species designated Streptococcus pyogenes, and the principles involved in the serological classification of a bacterial group are discussed.
The significance of penumococcal types
  • F. Griffith
  • Biology, Medicine
    Journal of Hygiene
  • 1 June 1966
TLDR
In the course of the examination of sputum from cases of lobar pneumonia, observations have been made on the incidence of the chief types of pneumococci, and the antigens of certain Group IV strains appear to be closely related to that of Type II.
ACUTE TONSILLITIS AND SOME OF ITS SEQUELS
TLDR
Delirium, convulsion, pyrexia, albuminuria, glycosuria, and the retinal haemorrhages give wide scope for discussion of their causal origin: Delirium and convulsion may be the result of the extravasation of blood on the surface of the brain.
The Aronson Streptococcus
  • F. Griffith
  • Biology, Medicine
    Journal of Hygiene
  • 1 February 1935
TLDR
The Aronson Streptococcus (Neufeld type), which Lance-field places in a group containing chiefly streptococci of bovine origin, is obtained from human throats, but there was no evidence in any instance that it was producing disease, and it seems probable that it is not pathogenic for man.
Second Report on the Identification of the Meningococcus in the Naso-Pharynx, with special reference to Serological Reactions
  • F. Griffith
  • Medicine, Biology
    Epidemiology and Infection
  • 1 July 1918
TLDR
The serological characters of 66 strains ofMeningococci obtained from the cerebro-spinal fluid in cases of meningitis have been studied and two series have been compared in respect of agglutinability, agglUTinogenic capacity, and absorptive capacity.
Types of Haemolytic Streptococci in Relation to Scarlet Fever (Second Report)
  • F. Griffith
  • Medicine
    Epidemiology and Infection
  • 1 October 1927
TLDR
A series of 222 strains has been analysed serologically and 156 have been found to react with one or other of four sera prepared with haemolytic streptococci of scarlatinal origin, finding evidence that the proportions of the four main types are likely to vary in different localities and in different outbreaks of scarlet fever in the same locality.
Bacteriological and Clinical Study of One Hundred Cases of Scarlet Fever
TLDR
There was evidence of correlation between serological type of streptococcus on the one hand and severity of scarlatinal attack and occurrence of complications on the other, and the results indicated that the four serological types have different immunological values.
