Excerpt from The American Medical Journal, 1889: Of St. Louis, Mo The Hunterian oration, by Dr. Qalabin. Says The germ theory to puerperal fever has caused the division into two classes - auto genetic and heterogenetic and that there are three possible sources of poison in the body of the puerperal woman (1) The poison may be produced within the body itself. (2) A chemical poison the so-called sepsin - may be produced by the 'action of the bac teria of decomposition and absorbed into the system. (3) Para sitie organisms may gain access to the body, and multiply in the tissues, in the blood or lymphatics, or in all of them. In the summing up of his paper he is disposed to recant his faith in the endogenetic, and adopt the heterogenetic doctrine.
