Summary

T) R ECTO Kala-azar Coin In iss of kala-azar in India and the measures necessary to combat it it being unuerswou that in the first instance the object of the Commission would be the discovery of the method of transmission of the disease. [...] This peculiar :Sporadic continuously present but ever shifting incidence is perhaps the most marked characteristic of the epidemiology of the disease in the indigenous villages and would appear to be the form of incidence the effects of which seen over a whole countryside give rise to the idea of an epidemic.* In the village of Khumtai it was found that a block of homesteads described by the wr [...] In the case of the prestomum there are ample soft membranous folds in connection with the labium and should these become the site of flagellate proliferation the working of the maxillae must of necessity carry the parasite into the wound for the upper parts of these organs would be surrounded by the folds in question and their lower parts would be working in the wound. [...] But in spite of this amount of work we still lack a satisfactory account of the morphology of the flagellate stage and are almost completely in the dark as to the nature and significance of the many different forms of the parasite that are seen in cultures ; nor do we know at all what is happening in a culture in respect to the life cycle and course of development of the parasite in these circumst [...] The inclusion of the solid medium enables the behaviour of the parasite in relation to the solid parts of the culture medium to be studied and also facilitates the mapping of the preparation.
