dc.description.abstract1. Severe Diphtheria occurs, and exacts its toll of human life in Manchester. 2. The idea of a new Therapeutic Agent was conceived in the nature of a Gravis Diphtheria Anti-bacterial Serum. 3. The outline of preparation and standardisation of Gravis Diphtheria Anti-bacterial Serum is described. 4. The attempt at experimental evaluation of the Therapeutic Serum was carried out in animals. 5. The results of the treatment of 35 severe cases of Gravis Diphtheria, with Gravis Anti-bacterial Serum, are compared with the results in 40 cases of similar type and severity, which were treated without Anti-bacterial Serum. 6. The results of the treatment of 6 cases of severe Diphtheria, due to the Intermediate type of Diphtheria organism, with j Gravis Anti-bacterial Serum, are compared with 5 similar cases which were treated without Anti-bacterial Serum. 7. The results of treatment of 3 complicated cases of Gravis Diphtheria with Anti-bacterial Serum, are compared with 3 similar cases which were treated without Anti-bacterial Serum. 8. The results of treatment of 3 severe cases of Diphtheria, due to Atypical Gravis organisms, which were treated with Anti-bacterial Seram, are described. 9. The course of the disease was not modified in any way by the administration of Anti-bacterial Serum.en
