Wyler, in this pamphlet, presents a method for raising the sensitiveness of the Wassermann method number 1, Medical Research Council, an improved technic of which he described in 1929, by increasing the quantity of serum used in the test. This method was included in the League of Nations' serologic conferences of Copenhagen (1928) and of Montevideo (1930) and was considerably less sensitive than the Kahn test; hence, presumably, the attempt to increase its sensitiveness.
