Abstract

During the last decade, the rapid
strides made in surgery are well-known
to the general pnblic.
The important question of immunity
is now attracting the attention of
the whole medical world, brought to its notice by the workers in haematology and
bacteriology.
The physician and bacteriologist must work together.
The
discovery of the phagocytic power of the
leucocytes has caused workers all over
the world to endeavour to make the test
simple, and give a practical therapeutic
value to it. I trust these few remarks
will be understood, so that the public will
be prepared in some measure for the practical
working of this new curative agency.
