Abstract

SUMMARY

Ascending urinary-tract infection with was established in rabbits. The bacteria were converted to L-phase organisms by treatment with penicillin. L-phase organisms were eliminated without further treatment from 9 per cent. In animals in which osmotic diuresis was established, L-phase organisms were eliminated from 59 per cent. In those treated with methacycline the elimination rate was 79 per cent. without and 90 per cent. with diuresis. A greater proportion of L-phase organisms survived in the kidney tissue than in the urine of animals treated by osmotic diuresis.
