dc.description.abstractGonorrhoea is but one of many infections amenable to the new antibiotics. Therapy of this disease is of special interest not only on account of its present wide prevalence but because of all human afflictions it is perhaps that most responsive to penicillin treatment.en
dc.description.abstractThis thesis is limited to a consideration of the results reported by others and obtained by myself in male cases with the sodium salt of penicillin. For the sake of clarity in exposition it is divided into fuur main parts. In the first a brief account is given of the properties and mode of action of penicillin upon which treatment is based; the second describes the results obtained by others. The third part is an account of Iv own experiences, clinical and laboratory, of treatment with single aqueous injections. Finally a discussion and summary are presented.en
