- ... The transtracheal inoculation of a mixture of anaerobic bacteria, with or without hydrochloric acid, into the lungs of mice caused nonlethal pneumonia and abscesses in a minority of challenged animals. All animals cleared organisms and recovered by 30 days. Secondary infection with Escherichia coli was common but did not affect the response to challenge with the anaerobes. ...

- ... 3 diluting fluids and 6 agar media were compared for the culture of caecal micro flora of mice. The efficiency of the media in the growth of caecal bacteria was determined by comparing the quantitative recovery (expressed as percentage of the total microscopic count) from the specimens. Of the diluting fluids saline resulted in a low yield (11·47%). Addition of potassium salts increased the yield ...
