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.

Spontaneous subcutaneous abscesses in rabbits are caused by a definite bacillus for which all of Koch's postulates have been fulfilled. At times the bacillus produces acute fatal infections in animals following bites. Bites or scratches are probably the common mode of infection. The bacillus is pleomorphic, tends to form threads and non-branching filaments, but is not strictly hemophilic, nor does it manifest the phenomenon of symbiosis in cultures. It should not be classed in the influenza group. This bacillus is identical culturally and in many respects morphologically with a bacillus which caused an epidemic of pleuropneumonia in rabbits. In small doses the latter produces subcutaneous abscesses similar in every respect to those caused by the abscess bacillus. The abscess bacillus by intratracheal injection may cause pneumonia. Agglutinins have not been noted in the sera of infected animals.
