International Conference on Standardization of Serums
In December, 1921, an international health conference was held in London, under the auspices of the League of Nations, to discuss the standardization of serums and serum reactions; in December, 1922, a second conference for the same purpose was held in the Pasteur Institute, Paris, at the suggestion and under the chairmanship of Professor Madsen, president of the health committee of the League of Nations. Professor Neufeld, director of the Robert Koch Institute for Infectious Diseases, Berlin, who, with Wassermann, Kolle and Sachs, took part in the conference, gives a report of the proceedings in the Deutsche medizinische Wochenschrift, Jan. 5, 1923. The transactions were carried on by subcommittees. The first dealt with the standardization of tetanus and diphtheria antitoxins. These investigations are nearly complete, and it is expected that an agreement will soon be reached as to a generally acceptable method of titration
