Description: Founded in 1904, The Journal of Infectious Diseases is the premier publication in the Western Hemisphere for original research on the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious diseases, on the microbes that cause them, and on disorders of host immune mechanisms. Articles in JID include research results from microbiology, immunology, epidemiology, and related disciplines. Published for the Infectious Diseases Society of America.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been
combined with another title.

By the titration method of estimating amino acids, ferments capable of splitting protein from carcinomatous tissue are demonstrable in the blood serum of patients with carcinoma. The power of the blood serum of carcinomatous patients to split carcinomatous protein does not differ from the normal with the same constancy and to the same degree when estimated by amino acid titration as indicated by the results obtained with the dialysis method of Abderhalden. Serum capable of splitting protein from carcinoma of the uterus was also capable of splitting protein from carcinoma of the breast, but not mixtures of gelatin and Witte's peptone. The complement content of the blood serum of a carcinoma patient is as a rule higher than normal.
