A typical, indol-forming strain of the Pfeiffer bacillus has been carried through a considerable number of successive generations in mixed culture in a blood-free medium with staphylococcus and B. subtilis. The growth accessory substances may, therefore, be found outside of blood. The "Pfeiffer presumptive test" has proved of practical application in these observations. Vegetable extracts alone were not suitable for growth of the Pfeiffer bacillus, either in pure culture or in mixed culture with staphylococcus.
