Abstract:

According to the authors experiments and to the biochemical properties of the two strains, everything happens as if Malassez and Vignals bacillus had been transformed into plague bacillus. The authors point out that as this transformation was taking place, no strain of plague bacillus was under experimentation at the Pasteur Institute, Casablanca, and that, on the other hand, among several thousand guinea-pigs used every year in this Institute, neither Yersins nor Malassez and Vignals bacillus has ever been isolated.
