Abstract

This report is the seventh in a series1 by the Veterans Administration-Army-Navy group that has been studying the chemotherapy of tuberculosis since 1946. This report is largely a summary of the data presented at the 15th Conference on the Chemotherapy of Tuberculosis, held in St. Louis, Feb. 6-9,1956. Its purpose is to briefly summarize data presented as a result of cooperative studies as well as to mention reports of pilot studies and other original work of individual hospitals or investigators. For more details on methods and techniques of the cooperative studies, reports of early conferences or the recent summary by Tucker2 may be consulted.

This report is directed primarily toward the internist and general practitioner of medicine rather than toward the specialist in pulmonary disease or tuberculosis. No effort will be made to report on all papers presented or to interpret any of the more controversial material debated.
