Abstract

Therapeutic treatments with actinomycin, fermicidin and chromomycin for 3 chronic infectious anemia horses were conducted. The results thus obtained may be summarized as follows : 1. The medicines were all injected intravenously. The dosage schedules of antibiotics per day were ; 10〜20 γ/kg in actinomycin, 15〜25 γ/kg in fermicidin and 5〜20 γ/kg in chromomycin. 2. The toxicity of the antibiotics for the 3 horses in this experiment is considered to be the highest in actinomycin and the lowest in fermicidin. 3. In the biopsies, especially in No.1,the temporary reduction of activity of reticulo-endothelial system and also temporary disappearance of siderocytes in the blood examinations were found respectively during the period of the repetition of the injections. 4. These 3 antibiotics were found to be not effective for infectious anemia horses.
