Clinical and experimental studies on shock due to infection with Gram-negative bacteria have been carried out by the author and several associates during the past ten years. During the decade 1950-1960 clinical studies were made on 150 patients, and during 1955 to 1960, 29 patients with shock and renal failure were evaluated.
