London, October 19. iqo6.
The inquiry instituted at the instance of the Lister Insti-
tute by the Government of India into the spread of plague
reinforces the theory that the disease is chiefly transmitted
by the flea of the rat. The report of the Commission has
not yet appeared, but Valtrex On Line some of its Valtrex Order operations and conclu-
sions have been published by the authority of the advisory
committee and are recorded by the Journal of Hygiene.
The association of rats with epidemics 500 Mg Valtrex of plague has
been noticed for generations, but the manner of communi-
cation was not established. Kitasato and Yersin showed
that the bacillus was the same in rats as in men, but it
was not until some seven or eight years ago that the flea
was suspected to be the carrying agent. The Indian Com-
mission has shown that plague can be so transmitted.
Simond eight years ago satisfied himself that the flea could
convey plague from one rat to another, but it was thought
the rat flea did not infect other animals or men — a view
now known to be untenable. The e.xperiments of the Com-
mission show that a common Indian rat infected with
plague does not transmit the disease if no fleas are present.
On the other hand, if fleas are present, plague may spread
from an infected rat to a healthy one confined in a separate
cage so as to prevent these animals coming into contact.
Plague may be communicated to guinea pigs, and these may
be let run among healthy animals, provided no fleas are
present. An infected animal may suckle its young without
giving theiTi plague, provided no flea is Valtrex Buy Online present ; but let
fleas have access and the plague spreads from one to an-
other, according to the number of fleas present. Other
c.\periments and observations seem to prove that rat fleas
in a house which has been disinfected after plague cases
will give the disease to guinea pigs, the fleas being caught
on these animals and placed on others which succumbed.
The bacillus was found in the stomachs of the fleas. If
houses in which plague had occurred were found to be
freed from fleas, the bacillus disappeared from them
sooner than had been previously supposed ; but so long as
they remained infection would continue.
At the Clinical Society the president, Mr. Clutton, de-
livered his address. Subject, Adolescent or Late Rickets.
His first case he met w^ith three years ago; a man at
twenty-one, who at twelve had had to wear supports for
genu valgum, and on whom osteotomy was done at sixteen
for both knees. At nineteen curvature resembling genu
recurvatum began. Patient shown, and skiagrams showed
changes in the bone were of long duration, and apparently
began at the epiphyseal lines. In the shafts adjoining the
epiphyses there was much less cortex than normal and a
large translucent medulla, and here the curvature had ap-
parently begim. Diagnosis was established by the active
state of rickets in the wrists, as seen in both radius and
ulna by ;r-rays. .Mmost all the long bones showed changes
at the ends of the diaphyses adjoining the epiphyses. Two
other cases at twelve and fourteen were shown by skia-
grams showing the disease in a recent state, the contrast
with the older cases being most interesting. Two post-
mortem specimens were also exhibited, one from the Col-
lege of Surgeons and one from the Children's Hospital. A
number of skiagrams taken by Dr. Greg at St. Thomas's
Hospital were also shown.
Mr. E. Muirhead Little described, with the specimen
from the College of Surgeons, a case occurring in a girl
of seventeen in whom infantilism was well marked and the
changes in the bones were extremely typical of rickets.
At the operation the bone was quite soft.
Mr. Lucas, referring to a paper in which he had tried to
show a connection between late rickets and intermittent
albuminuria, said the emotional state of puberty favored
the occurrence of both.
Dr. P. Weber recalled that Wright had shown that cal-
cium salts would cure most cases of Purchase Valtrex cyclic albuminuria,
but had little or no eflfect on rickets.
[Nov. lo, 1906
Mr. R. C. Elmslie showed two cases and remarked on
the difficulty of tracing the origin, the history obtainable
being incomplete or untrustworthy. In many cases in
which he had by the jr-rays found rickets the condition
was quite unknown to the mother., The signs might all
disappear by the age of eight, e.xcept the puny development
and head changes, particularly a curious high forehead.
These features he always found in late rickets, and they
suggested an early origin.
At the Obstetrical Society Drs. Eden and Provis related
a case of intraligamentous fibrocystic uterine tumor weigh-
ing about thirty pounds removed by enucleation and in-
complete hysterectomy. The patient died the ne.xt day,
but post mortem could not be obtained. It was thought
embolism was the cause of death, as there were complica-
tions suggesting such an occurrence.
Mr. Eric Young then read an account of a case of pri-
mary tuberculosis of the cervix uteri in a thin, nervous woman
of twenty-si-x, married, healthy up to six months before
seen. Thick, yellow discharge, a constant pain in back for
five weeks, no bleeding, no glandular enlargement ; cervix
indurated and swollen, uneven, ulcerated in places, nodular,
not friable ; uterus freely movable ; lungs healthy ; no sign
of tubercle elsewhere ; none in family. Hysterectomy was
done. Six months later no recurrence. Dr. Routh said
the case was important in reference to the relative fre-
quency of tubercle of the cervix and Fallopian tube. Dr.
Lewers had had such a case and the patient remained
well for several years after the operation. Dr. Galabin
had had a case in which the body of the uterus had become
involved so that hysterectomy was the only resource. Dr.
Andrews had seen a similar case turn out to be syphilitic.
At the Valtrex To Buy Medical Society of London the vermiform appen-
dix was again under discussion — this Order Valtrex time as the subject
of actinomycosis, or, as some prefer to call it, strepto-
thrichosis, as other forms of streptothrix than the ray
fungus may be concerned in the disease. Mr. T. H. Kel-
lock read the paper and gave some account of seven cases
which had occurred at the Middlesex Hospital within the
last three years. He described two types of the disease :
(i) Simple streptothrix infection in or about the appendix;
(2) a graver infection complicated by the presence of pyo-
genic organisms. In quiet cases slight, long-continued pain
and indurated tissue were the clinical features. In suppu-
rating cases early signs were followed by burrowing ab-
scesses. When diagnosis was clear, operation was advised.
There was some discussion of the paper and one of the
speakers held that a cecal origin could not be excluded
in most cases, Cheap Valtrex if any, while as to treatment, operation alone
was not sufficient, but iodide of potassium was also neces-
sary to effect a cure.
Professor Osier opened the new wing of the Acland
Home on Saturday. He read a letter sent by direction of
the Queen, congratulating Miss Acland, to whose exertion
much is due, on the success of the institution which bears
the name of her great and good father. Dr. Osier remarked
that with 3,000 undergraduates it was important to have
a home to which they could aonly in serious illness. It
was established as a memorial of Mrs. Acland and the late
The Guild of St. Luke had its Buying Valtrex annual service at St.
Paul's on Wednesday, when above two hundred doctors
in robes attended. The master and wardens of the Apothe-
caries' Company, wearing their blue gowns, trimmed with
sable, formed a little procession and were conducted to
seats in the choir. Then came the Valtrex Buy large choir, followed
by the robed doctors, walking two and two. Dr. A. Caley
read the first lesson (Eccles. xxxviii.) and Sir Dyce Duck-
worth the second (Luke xiii.). Canon Newbold, warden of
the guild, preached from the Third Epistle of St. John, sec-
ond verse, and dwelt on the work of doctors and clergy in
the cause of health, bodily Buy Valtrex and spiritual, appealing to
medical men to join with the clergy in Valtrex Online work which both
desired to promote.
Two quacks were committed for trial on Wednesday,
charged Get Valtrex with obtaining money by fraud. For years they
have driven a thriving trade by advertising that the Rev.
J. Hope would tell incurable patients of a remedy. On
application powders were recommended ; price, 18/6.
-Analyzed, they were found to consist of a mi.xture of
sodium carbonate and potassium bromide, colored with
bark, and valued at 2d. From Valtrex Purchase January to Septem-
ber they netted ^3,300 from ignorant sufferers, some of
whom testified that they trusted the reverend gentleman
and had no idea that he did not exist.
Dr. E. R. H. Pollard, M.R.C.P.I., 1887, Inspector-General
of Hospitals and Fleets and First Inspector-General of the
Royal Xaval Hospital, Chatham, died in that institution
on the 9th inst., aged fifty-one.
Lieut.-Col. C. S. Wills, C.B., late of the R.A.M.C, died
on the I2th, after a long illness, aged seventy-two. He
entered the army in i860 and saw much service. In Online Valtrex the
Zulu War of 1879 he was P.M.O. and Sanitary Officer,
Director of Hospitals, etc., was mentioned in despatches,,
awarded the medal, and retired as Lieut.-Col. and C.B. in

SALT-FREE TRE.^TMENT OF EPILEPSY — THE BIRTH RATE IN"
SWEDEN — A MODIFIED RIVA-ROCCI APPARATUS — PROFESSOR
HAMMARSTEN's jubilee — COMPETITION FOR THE CHAIR OF
CoPE.N'HAGEN, October 16, 1906.
It will be remembered that Toulouse and Richet in 1900
recommended a new treatment of epilepsy, consisting in the
withdrawal of sodium chloride from the food. The explan-
ation of the good results was said to be found in the cir-
cumstance that the bromides, given to the patient, would
show a greater efficacy. The treatment has been tried in
many places, but the last word has not yet been said re-
garding its value. In Denmark the treatment has been tried
by Dr. A. Sell, physician in charge of an asylum for epilep-
tics, with nearly two hundred inmates. On the whole,
he approves of the How To Order Valtrex treatment, but a recently published re-
search by Dr. Hermann Lundborg, physician of the Upsala
.\sylum (Sweden), would seem to show that not all cases
are favorably influenced by it. Lundborg states that the
treatment very often causes a remarkable decrease in the
number of attacks, but, on the other hand, not seldom also
a deterioration of the psyche. It would seem that the
treatment ought Valacyclovir Valtrex only to be applied in asylums, infirmaries,
and other places, where the patient is under constant super-
vision. It is indicated in cases with relatively frequent at-
tacks without pronounced psychical accidents ; in cases with
transitory psychoses, when these appear in connection with
attacks, the intervals being as free as possible ; finally, in
torpid forms of epilepsy without too pronounced stupor.
The treatment is contraindicated in cases with grave com-
plications in lungs, heart, vessels, or kidneys : in cases com-
plicated by hysteria or epileptiform hysterical attacks ; in
cases of a pronounced erethistic type, and, finally, in cases
in which stupor is more or less constant.
Another distinguished Swede, Prof. Pontius Fahlbeck,
has published a highly interesting investigation into the
birth rate of our time with special reference to Sweden.
The many important statements made by the writer can-
not but make a deep impression on all those who feel
alarmed at the decrease in fertility of the human race in
Europe. I shall here reproduce some of Professor Fahl-
beck's results. In a table, giving the number of living
born per 1,000 of the population, we see that France has
gone down from 25.5 in the lustrum 1871-1875 to 21.9 in
1896-1900 ; Sweden during the same periods from 30.7 to
