The evaluation and modification of a technique for comparing the efficiency of antiseptics against subcutaneously deposited bacteria in mice
1. Leonard Jeffries,

An attempt has been made to study the action of antiseptics on artificial streptococcal wounds' in mice by a published technique (Martin, 1959). The results were not in agreement with those of Martin and the possible reasons for this are discussed. Suggestions are made for modifying the original method to increase its scope and precision. The production and treatment of Ps. pyocyanea and Kl. aerogenes wounds' in mice is described and discussed.
