DescriptionThe paper by Dr Edington 'On the Production of a Malarial Type of South African Horse-sickness', which Manson communicated to the Society has been considered by the Physiology Sectional Committee. The Committee has not recommended its acceptance in its present form but considering the importance of the conclusions the Committee think that the significance of the experimental data should be reconsidered by the author and extended by further controlled experiments.
