Although recent reports of successes in the diagnosis and treatment of the pneumonias, according to specific criteria, have been impressive, it can hardly be said that the medical world is committed to the procedures. There are several valid reasons why this is true. While there have been excellent results reported by reliable observers in the treatment of the acute pneumonias with specific serum, the technical difficulties involved in accurate typing, as well as the expense incurred in the use of curative serum, are the major objections raised, and the ones which have caused clinicians to approach the subject with hesitation.
