Abstract:

The report states that in the conditions of natural illness from botulism entering together with microbes of botulism, the toxins and products of the putrescent putrefaction of albumin heightens the sensitivity of the organism to the microbe. The daily injection of botulinus microbes, as well as of the toxin, sharply heightens the animals resistance sensitivity to subsequent injections.
