On digestive and eating disorders in children

Lepsky E.M.


In recent years, the Soviet Union has succeeded in reducing considerably the morbidity of adults and children from many diseases, especially infectious diseases. But digestive disorders in children in many places still do not show a proper decline and therefore require special attention.

Comparative evaluation of specific and non-specific treatments for dysentery

Messinova M.S.


Many different methods have been proposed for the treatment of dysentery, both specific and non-specific: therapeutic serum, bacteriophage, vaccine, general medication, as well as local application of various enemas: disinfectant, astringent, oil, etc. Recently, quartz irradiation and diathermy on the abdominal area have been tried. However, the question of the most rational method of treatment is still unresolved.

On the issue of serological diagnosis of dysentery in young children

Kolyu A.I.


Dysentery has a varied course in children. In atypical cases, the diagnosis of dysentery, especially in young children, is extremely difficult. Recognition of the disease by bacteriological examination alone is not always possible, as bacteriological confirmation even in clinically clear cases of undoubted dysentery is often lacking, and, in addition, bacteriological examination often indicates a dyspeptic etiology of dyspepsias with a very different clinical picture.

On the role of rats in the epidemiology of intestinal infections

Nemshilov S.F., Ananyeva V.V., Chemodanov V.N.


Typhoid fever, dysentery, paratyphoid fever and food-borne toxicoses of the paratyphoid type are relatively well studied bacteriologically. The spread of these diseases is mainly due to factors such as water, flies, bacilliform carriage in humans; in the case of paratyphoid toxic infections it is also due to insufficient veterinary surveillance at slaughter, unsanitary conditions of carcass transportation, lack of proper sanitary surveillance during storage and manufacture of various kinds of food products. The presence of the virus outside the epidemic period, for example in winter, is poorly understood. Experimental studies published in the literature on this subject are scarce and somewhat contradictory.

The effect of rosehip water infusion on the acidity and digestibility of gastric juice

Permyakov F.K.


Rosehip is the best vitamin carrier studied so far. It contains more vitamin C than oranges, lemons, black currants, etc. (Acharkan, Lieberman, Pomegranate). In dried form, rose hips retain their C-vitamin activity for a long time. As established by the research of Engelhardt and Bukin, the stability of vitamin C in rose hips is due to the complete absence of the oxidizing enzyme, ascorbinase.

Use of mineral water from Rysovsky spring No. 2 for gastric ailments

Kopyrin S.A.


Over the last 10 years, a group of little-studied mineral springs has been discovered in the area of the main Izhevsk spring, of which the so-called Rysovsky springs are of particular interest. These springs come to the surface in the form of springs of different power and are located on the right bank of the Kama River, 6 km far from the exploited Izhevsk spring. According to Blumstein's data, these springs are very close to the Izhevsk spring in their chemical composition, but differ from it by less mineralisation and a slightly different quantitative ratio of salts.

Histamine therapy of gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer

Kobyzev A.S., Kogan L.S.


The treatment of painful crises in peptic ulcer disease with low doses of histamine was proposed by Jacob and Israel. By using histidine in the treatment of ulcer patients, they obtained an excellent therapeutic effect. But they noticed that in some patients histidine injection produced symptoms of shock, transient leukopenia and lowering of arterial blood pressure. This led the authors to speculate that the histidine solution also contained histamine, which is derived from histidine by cleavage of the carboxylic group.

Treatment of trachomatous pannus with the introduction of other group blood

Zabugin A.K., Kuznetsov I.M.


Blood transfusion as a therapeutic method has taken a firm place in medical practice. In many diseases, timely blood transfusion is sometimes decisive in saving the patient's life. In ophthalmology, however, such cases are extremely rare, so the indications for blood transfusion in ophthalmic diseases are comparatively limited.

On some positive and negative properties of dicain

Langer C.M.


Among the numerous preparations proposed for local anaesthesia - the preparation of dicaine obtained by Feldman and Kapiljevic deserves special attention. A number of Soviet authors using dicaine give very good reviews of it (Chlusser, Promtov, Pasternak, Bulach, etc.). Promtov, who worked extensively on testing a number of anaesthetics, carried out a detailed study of the properties of dicaine on 100 different patients.

Fast method of determining certain alkaloids in vitro and in cerebrospinal fluid

Manoilov E.O.


In forensic practice, deaths from extremely small amounts of alkaloids are sometimes observed. It is sometimes difficult to determine from which alkaloids the subject has died. But the exact determination of the direct cause of death is of great importance for the forensic expert. The most common alkaloids are novocaine, cocaine, morphine, and caffeine.

On microbial eczema

Kondratyev G.G.


The theory of a microbial origin of eczema was first proposed by Unna in 1900. He believed that the specific causative agent of eczema was the cocci found in eczema vesicles in clusters. Later studies have shown that these cocci are a type of Staphylococcus aureus.

Human Anatomy Atlas

Ternovsky V.N., Murat V.N.


The third volume of the atlas is published with the same care as the previous ones. The paper is excellent, and the drawings are good and quite clear. The introduction of X-rays, absolutely necessary in a modern edition, is quite timely. The voluminous outline of the book meets the pedagogical needs of the higher medical schools. However, we can't help noting a number of annoying errors, which are particularly inappropriate for such a widely needed manual in the teaching process.

Propaedeutics of childhood diseases

Lepsky E.


Doctors who are not specially trained in paediatrics often find it difficult to treat young children because they are not sufficiently familiar with the examination of the child, its anatomical and physiological characteristics and the symptoms of childhood illnesses. They can be advised against the above-mentioned manual by Prof. Tour, which covers all this in detail.

Observations on absorption, distribution and excretion of sulfapyridine

Board Е.


Studies have been carried out on 90 patients with pneumonia who received sulfapyridine, of whom only 4 patients received the drug by injection and the rest received it intravenously. These studies show that a large proportion of the drug is not absorbed from the gut and thus does not enter the bloodstream.

Reduced duration of peripheral motor neuron paralysis by cholinergic excitation

Wolf A.


The fact that acetyl-choline is the interstitial agent between the primary nerve impulse and the subsequent muscle contraction is creating a new era in neurophysiology. Acetyl-choline is an interneuronal chemical transmitter between certain preganglionic and postganglionic fibres. The concept of the transformation of electrical current into chemical current in the process of conducting excitation in the nerve enables the author to think that the "vagus hormone", as a bridge between synapses, can be used in the restoration of the function of the damaged peripheral nerve.
