Insists That Bovine Tuberculosis Cannot Be
Transferred to Human Beings.
BERLIN, Oct. '2. The sensation of today's (session of the inter
nutionul tuberculosis congress came toward tbe end, in the form of a
paper by Professor Kocli, in which ho maintained all bis former po
sitions regarding the nontransferability of animal tuberculosis to
man. Professor Koch wished to be understood that his statements
yoferred exclusively to the transmission of bovine tuberculosis.
, He asserted that statistics on the subject of intestinal tubercu
losis' were too incomplete to establish the frequency of that disease.
Professof Koch admitted that cases of tuberculosis do occur among
butchers and other persons who handle animals, but he asserted that
the petventago of sufferers from the disease among joiners is equally
as high as among handlers of animals and meat.
