Klebs maintains that such emboli consist of parasitic organisms.
This reaction Klebs ascribes to post-mortem changes in the glycogenic substance.
Similar disorganization has been described by Ames, Klebs, and others.
More recently the somewhat larger sizes were regarded by Klebs, Perles as amœbæ and similar organisms.
Meyer regards them as chlamydospores, and Klebs as "carpospores" or possibly chlamydospores similar to the endospores of yeast.
Klebs inoculated the micrococci in pigeons and dogs, and found them in the blood of the animals after death.
As to the experiments of Klebs relating to the transmission of acquired characters, see Appendix.
This discovery of a tuberculosis of the blood-vessels was confirmed by Klebs, who had found a tuberculosis of the azygos veins.
We may add, however, that Klebs considers his own method preferable.
Klebs (klāps), Edwin. 1894-1913.
German pathologist who described (1883) the causative bacillus of diphtheria, later isolated by Friedrich Löffler.
German bacteriologist who described the diphtheria bacillus in 1883 although he did not demonstrate it to be the cause of the disease. It wasn't until a year later that Friedrich Löffler made the causal link between the disease and the bacillus, which is now named after both of them. Klebs also demonstrated the presence of bacteria in infected wounds and showed that tuberculosis can be transmitted through infected milk.
