Abstract:

The study of the effect of oxygen starvation on the sensitivity of animals to plague is of certain theoretical and practical interest. Such investigation can help in the study of the pathogenesis of plague infection. In addition, in the case of various ailments of infectious and non-infectious origin, as a rule, hypoxia occurs. Considering the great frequency of varied ailments in animals, it is fully realistic under natural conditions to have a combination of oxygen starvation caused by some pathologic process with plague. On the basis of these considerations a series of tests was conducted in which we established the relation between oxygen starvation of the organism and the sensitivity of the animals to plague infection.
