1907 Excerpt: ...inoculation. Of the cases recorded as having been
inoculated, 54.5% gave a positive result as to the pneumococcus.
RESULTS OF STAINING, CULTURE, AND INOCULATION OF A DEFINITE
HEMORRHAGE. The expectorated blood of sixteen cases with frank
hemorrhage was studied. The pneumococcus was stained for in fifteen
of the sixteen cases and was found in seven; the streptococcus was
stained for in fifteen and was found in ten; and the influenza
bacillus was stained for in two and found in none. Cultures are
recorded as having been made in six of the sixteen cases. In two
the pneumococcus was recorded as having been grown and in one as
not having been grown; in three the streptococcus was recorded as
having been grown and in one as not having been grown; in one the
staphylococcus is recorded as having been grown and there is no
record of any failures of growth; and in two the pseudodiphtheria
bacillus is recorded as having been grown and there is no record of
failures. The expectorated blood of six of the sixteen cases is
recorded as having been injected into mice. The pneumococcus was
discovered in the blood of the mouse by staining in none of these
cases and was cultured from the blood of the mouse in one case. In
two cases the blood is recorded as having been injected into a
rabbit and in one of these the pneumococcus was found in the blood
of the rabbit by staining. In the cases in which the pneumococcus
was recovered from the blood of the mouse and the rabbit the
streptococcus as well as the pneumococcus had been found in the
expectorated blood. PATHOLOGICAL DIAGNOSIS AND DESCRIPTION OF THE
