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 methods. #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- ment because it is apt to be followed by severe reactions. #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 have failed. #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 this treatment. #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
