Abstract

The purpose of this paper is primarily to prove the possibility of the existence of an improved and simplified bacteriological diagnosis of tuberculosis so that proper treatment may be employed in the curing of the disease. A simpler technic than those presently in use should be devised together with a highly efficient determination of acid-fast bacilli in a sample of sputum from a suspected tubercular patient.
