The work for the following thesis was carried, out in St. Olave's Hospital, London. On account of the fact that no satisfactory theory had. ever been advanced, to explain certain phenomena of pneumonia, and. also that no treatment based, on known pathological facts of undoubted, value was at present in use, the theory later to be explained was first suggested and the practical work in support of it then undertaken. It is acknowledged that the number of cases so far investigated is small, and that much more still requires to be done. However, the results were considered well worthy of further trial over a larger field and hence a sufficient justification for publishing and thus placing this mode of treatment at the disposal of others who might be interested.
