RECENT PROGRESS IN THE STUDY OF MALARIA IN ITALY.

JAMA. 1899;XXXII(14):769-770. doi:10.1001/jama.1899.02450410033006
Abstract

It is well known that our knowledge of malaria, a most important disease, has received some of the most significant contributions from Italy. In order to facilitate a further study of malaria a number of Italian physicians organized themselves into an association known as the Italian Society for the Study of Malaria. In the first annual report (for 1898) read by Professor Celli at a meeting of the society, the results of the more important recent investigations made by members of the society are mentioned.1

In spite of our in some respects quite complete knowledge of malaria, there are still two problems which remain unsolved, namely, the existence of the parasites outside of the animal organism, and the manner in which they infect man and animals. These two problems have formed the principal object for investigation by the Italian scientists during the last year or so.
