Kahn Test Still Effective
In Current World Usage
DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
A test for the detection of syph-
ilis developed by a University pro-
fessor 31 years ago outranks all
others currently being used in all
parts of the world.
Originated by Prof. Reuben L.
Kahn, chief of the University Hos-
pital's serology laboratory, the
Kahn test is used in 58 countries,
according to a report by the World
Based on surveys of six regions
of the world, the report indicated
more than 400 important labora-
tories still rely on the Kahn test.
Two Basic Methods
There are only two basic sci-
Former dean of the University's
Medical School, Dr. Frederick
George Novy celebrates his 90th
Dr. Novy began his career as an
assistant in chemistry at the Uni-
versity in 1886 and retired as dean
of the Medical School in 1935.
Born in Chicago Dec. 9, 1864,
Dr. Novy established the first anti-
rabies station in the United States,
located in Ann Arbor.
Among his contributions to sci-
ence are the discovery of the caus-
ative agent of American relapsing
fever and instrumental work in in-
troducing public health inspection
of water in Michigan.
For his contributions, Dr. Novy
was decorated with a chevalier in
the Legion d'Honneur, inducted in-
to the Order of the White Legion
of Czechoslovakia and elected Hen-
ry Russel Lecturer at the Univer-

entific methods for the detection
of syphilis, the report said. "Tube
flocculation" is the basis for the
Kahn test while the other, "com-
plement-fixation," is the principle
of the Wasserman test.
The World Health report listed
22 different tests, based on one
of these two principles, used in
laboratories around the world.
After the Kahn test, which rank-
ed first in 460 laboratories in 58
countries, came the Meincke test,
ranked second in 156 labs in 20
countries and the Kolmer test
(based on Wasserman principle),
placed third by 153 labs in 24
Iron Curtain Countries
Although the report did not ex-
tend into Iron Curtain countries,
there is reason to believe it is
used there since Prof. Kahn's work
has been translated into Russian.
In 1933, ten years after Prof.
Kahn's test was developed, he was
given the 11th annual award of
American Association for the De-
velopment of Science for "out-
standing contributions in the field
of medical science"
Prof. Kahn also received a gold
medal from Phi Lambda Kappa
honorary society for his work.

Tomorrow morning's session will
highlight "The Potential in De-
