Abstract

Summary

The experiments described include (1) the experimental production of granulomatous lesions suggestive of early lesions of leprosy in two species of monkeys by intradermal inoculation of human leprosy material; (2) the cultivation of acid-fast (presumably ) bacilli from human leprosy nodules on several artificial mediums in various gaseous environments; and (3) the experimental production of granulomatous lesions, suggestive of early leprosy, in two species of monkeys by the intradermal inoculation of cultures of acid-fast bacilli from human leprosy material grown on artificial mediums. We believe the experiments indicate a step forward in the fulfillment of Koch's postulates for the causative agent in the disease of leprosy.
