The results of immunological studies of a large number of patients with pneumococcic pneumonia treated with sulfapyridine were reported recently from this laboratory.1 As far as could be determined, the antibody response of these patients was comparable in every respect to that resulting from spontaneous recovery of similar cases included in previous investigationsin which the same methods were employed.2-6 The tests used in the study of the serums from the sulfapyridine treated cases included: agglutinins, which were determined in every instance; mouse protection tests, which were carried out in all cases due to some of the common pneumococcus types; and
