Abstract:

In guinea pigs infected with plague and treated with streptomycin a postinfection immunity is not developed. The experimental animals which had recovered through treatment with a refined, concentrated gamma-globulin fraction of antiplague serum proved to be immune to a re-inoculation with the specific culture. Taking into consideration the therapeutic properties and the data concerning the different mechanism of action possessed by streptomycin and by the gamma-globulin fraction of antiplague serum, one should consider their joint use as expedient for therapeutic purposes.
