PENICILLIN NO CURE-ALL REPORTS THE WAR DEPARTMENT

From YANK Magazine

Penicillin is neither a miracle nor a cure-all, says a WD report on the new drug’s usefulness and limitations. The report reveals that penicillin has a high efficiency in combatting certain types of bacteria but is almost wholly ineffective against others. A Medical Corps summary points out that “the most dramatic results are relief from pain and quick restoration of a normal appetite, even in seriously wounded men.” The drug is especially effective in helping the body build up new tissue proteins and in regenerating red blood cells and hemoglobin after wounds.
