The Noguchi modification of the Wassermann test in psychiatry by William W. Holmes Download PDF EPUB FB2

In selecting a method for the performance of the complement-fixation test of syphilitic sera, we were influenced by several factors, chief of which were the following: In studying the different methods carefully and comparing the results obtained by different workers, we were impressed by the apparent accuracy of Noguchi's modification of the Wassermann test as shown by Noguchi 1, Fox 2, Swift 3 Cited by: 1.

To the Editor: —On page of The Journal, Aug. 23,appears a statement credited to me to which I should like to invite attention because as it stands it is very misleading. The statement should read: "I have been able to increase the sharpness of the reaction nearly four times by using Author: Hideyo Noguchi.

In describing Noguchi's test, these words are used: "This means that the suspension of sheep blood corpuscles and patient's serum are all that the physician himself needs to furnish." Now the point is that no sheep corpuscles or any corpuscles other than human are needed in the test as simplified by Noguchi.

In the vast majority of cases examined in this laboratory the result of the Wassermann test was simply confirmatory of the clinical findings, but there were numerous suspicious cases, or cases in which symptoms were present and the patient denied a specific history, in which the test was of the greatest value, and it is in such instances, perhaps, that it may be regarded as "the court Cited by: 2.

The author concludes that malarial infection does not affect the Wassermann reaction (Noguchi modification). Cases of filariasis, yellow fever, blackwater fever and amoebic dysentery also gave negative results.

Some unpublished work done in Bombay in is recorded, the Hecht modification of the Wassermann test as used by FLEMING having been adopted, although its disadvantages are recognized; 10, 5 and 21/2 per cent, antigen in normal saline was employed.

Six test-tubes about 10 cm. long and 1 cm. in diameter are placed in a rack, and into each are put c.c. non-syphilitic serum, the usual quantity of antigen, c.c. complement, and c.c. 5% sheep corpuscle suspension; the rack is then placed in the incubator for one hour, at the end of which time the amboceptor serum is added in amounts.

The "Laboratory Diagnosis of Syphilis" covers the same ground as the older book, and has an added chapter.The Noguchi modification of the Wassermann was used in making these tests as we consider it one of the most accurate complement fixation tests for syphilis, as well as one of the most convenient.

We used antigen prepared from non-syphilitic tissue, beef heart being em- ployed.Over the short span of 15 years, thanks chiefly to the introduction of the Wassermann reaction test and Hideyo Noguchi’s discovery of the Treponema pallidum bacterium, the diagnosis of general paresis of the insane had been transformed from a psychopathological to a physiopathological procedure.
