Abstract

1. An account is given of certain important descriptions of epidemics before and during the recent war, and of observations made with regard to them, 2. Recent work on the nature of the infective agent and of trans- mission experiments is described, 3. An epidemic among troops on occupation duties in Germany is described and its features discussed. 4. Some suggestions are made regarding prevention of infective hepatitis in units, based on aspects of recent work. This includes the superchlorination of water supplies, and general hygiene measures, the avoidance of blood spread, the early recognition of pre-icteric cases by urine examinations, and immunization with gamma globulin.
