Since the demonstration by Whitby1 of the specific action of sulfapyridine against the pneumococcus, the value of this new chemotherapeutic agent in the treatment of lobar pneumonia has been the subject of extensive clinical investigation. The report of Evans and Gaisford,2 describing the results of treatment of 100 patients ill with lobar pneumonia, was so impressive that a stimulus was given for a wide-spread trial of the drug in this country. Subsequent publications,3-7 already voluminous, not only have confirmed the observations of Evans and Gaisford, but have established a definite place for sulfapyridine in the treatment of pneumococcus lobar pneumonia.
