The Results of Antituberculosis Prophylaxis—The Separation of Young Children from Tuberculous Parents  M. Léon Bernard and his collaborators, R. Debré and M. Lelong, recently presented before the Academy of Medicine the results secured by removing children from homes in which one or both parents were tuberculous and placing them in healthy family surroundings. The Oeuvre de placement familial des tout petits, the society that finds homes for young children from tuberculous families, has been functioning for nearly five years. It was founded by M. Léon Bernard with the aid of public and private contributions. Its functioning presupposes the existence of several societies acting in harmony.
