Abstract:

The diazo reaction seems to be triggered in those diseases in which the streptococci enter the blood circulation and announce their sudden flooding through high septic fever. After the antistreptococci serum was successfully used in scarlet fever and recently also in connection with sepsis--because i.v. collargol injections also reveal favorable results in septic processes--it can be said the diazo reaction will furnish a welcome indicator for the early application of this therapy it may well be the only indicator which offers any chance of success in case of general affections.
