In the subcutaneous nodules were found larval forms of the nematode and possibly adult male forms. The reaction about these(More)
1. Rabbits inoculated intravenously with non-hemolytic streptococci, while under the influence of full therapeutic doses of sodium salicylate, developed almost as many inflamed joints as the untreated controls similarly inoculated. 2. The salicylated rabbits, on the other hand, had a much higher proportion of mildly inflamed Joints than did the controls. 3.(More)
It was impossible to demonstrate a condition of specific joint sensitization to non-hemolytic streptococci by first injecting the joints of rabbits with small doses of killed non-hemolytic streptococci, or with extracts of these organisms, and subsequently inoculating the rabbits intravenously with homologous living bacteria. Joints so treated were no more(More)
