TLDR
For a number of year different investigators have attempted to cultivate the lepra bacillus of man and the allied organisms found in the rat and other animals, but so far, no one has produced a culture of acid-fast bacilli isolated from a leper, and showing the characters of the lePra b Bacillus as found inThe tissues of man.
