Abstract:

This report states that the anthrax infection is not merely governed by the number of spores introduced into the organism but also by causes which permit these spores to multiply in any of the tissues. The industrial prophylactic of pulmonary anthrax must bear in mind this conclusion and to try to bar the workmen not only from contagion, thru infected dust, but also protect him from the usual causes of diverse irritations permitting a multiplication of the invading germs in an organism where they could not otherwise develop.
