These workers present a series of experiments in which rabbits with either healed or granulating wounds (or both) upon their backs were subsequently inoculated intratesticularly or intravenously with a virulent strain of Spirocheta pallida.

The incubation period of the lesions developing after intravenous inoculation corresponded closely with that of lesions which develop at the site of inoculation after subcutaneous injection. From this it is inferred that shortly or immediately following intravenous inoculation the spirochetes
