|dc.description.abstract||#1. Twenty cases of erysipelas have been treated
with milk injections, and a comparison made between
these and twenty similar cases treated by other
#2. Milk injections have their greatest value in
recurrent cases and in erysipelas 'migrans'.
#3. Twenty cases of asthma were treated by injections
of old tuberculin.
#4. This treatment is safe and successful in cases
of asthma which have failed to respond to other
methods of treatment.
#5. Twenty cases of rheumatoid arthritis were
treated by injections of typhoid -paratyphoid vaccine
#6. This treatment must be used with care and judg-

#7. Injection of vaccine should not be used as a
routine measure in rheumatoid arthritis, but may be
tried when other well -recognised forms of treatment
#8. The treatment is most valuable in cases which
show synovial changes rather than in those which
showed marked bony change.
#9 . Twenty cases of general paralysis of the insane Acre
treated by malarial therapy.
#10. 45% of the cases were observed to have benefited
by this treatment for a period of at least
twelve months after injection.
#11. One case died as a direct result of malarial
treatment. Patients must be carefully selected for
#12. Improvement in the blood and cerebro- spinal
fluid is sometimes observed after treatment.
#13. Best results were obtained when anti - syphilitic
treatment was given before and after malaria.||en
