Before the Second World War, no successful attempts at the regional control of endemic filariasis in Japan had been made, but in 1952 a systematic and co-operative research programme was undertaken by Japanese scientists. This work was aided from the star...

Dr Nakajima: Women are considered as exemplars and educators in families and in societies and, as such, their behaviour is of special importance. Unfortunately, they are becoming the targets of tobacco publicity. WHO must therefore use all its moral authority to prevent this plague of the 20th century from hitting women as hard as it has hit men. Every one of us has a duty to do all we can to ensure that the worldwide rate of smoking decreases for both men and women. Non...

At the time when preliminary investigations with penicillin were in progress, supplies of the drug were limited and very little could be allotted for the treatment of yaws. As a result, schedules were based on a total dosage of 300,000 to 600,000 units of aqueous penicillin. It was soon learned that although all patients with early yaws who received this relatively small amount of penicillin were rapidly rendered non-infectious, relapses occurred. Some investigators were...

Provided medical practitioners are reasonably well aware of this risk, the possibility of malaria is unlikely to be missed in the great majority of affected travellers. It is therefo...
