Studies in Spirillum obermeieri and related organisms.

J. infect. Dis., 3, 291-393, 1906.

Novy and Knapp made important observations on the spirochaete isolated by Norris et al. from a case of (American) relapsing fever, proving it to be different from Borrelia obermeieri, sometimes referred to as “Novy’s bacillus”, Borrelia novyi. The above paper includes work on the immunology of the disease.
