Immunity is attained by injecting immune animal brain cells into the organism. Prof. Mansfcld, who started his experiments -ome 11 years ago concluded that: 1. The toxin of every infectious germ and, every pathogcnetic virus is firbt absorbed by cells of the brain and makes its way from there, by the periphcric nerves, to the various organs. 2. Experimenting with sulpha drugs, Prof. Mansfcld found that they do not kill the germs in the human organism, but keep them and their products out of the or- |ganib»: by L-'ocking the brain cells.. That discovery !.as been substantiated by experiences showing that if a cut is made through the nerve connecting the sick organ to the central nervous system, the disease ceased to develop. The immunity against the same kind of infection has been developed by the organism, nevertheless. That made it obvious that although the infectious germ suc- ceeded, by way of the blood, I n ' reaching the brain cells, It could., not continue its trip into the'ctlls of the organism, because the nerve ' was scverpd. ' v · 3. Prof. Mansfeld succeeded in : immunizing healthy .animals with the brains of animals which have become immune by having recovered from tuberculosis. Inasmuch as the injection of immune brain cells holds no* danger whatsoever, the way seems to have been opened to a new wide range therapy of infcctional sicknesses. I MOTHER DOESN'T WANT HIM.
