to the effect that, if trachoma is contagious at all. it is only mildly so and that where contagion, takes place it is in all probability due to some superadded ?icute conjunctival inflammation. However much Viagra Buy Now Pay Later the results of laboratory experi- mentation may incline one to the view of the infec- tiousness of the disease, there are certain clinical facts which strongly indicate that the danger of con- tagion has been overestimated. For instance, there is ' not, so far as we know, a single instance on record of an examining physician at Ellis Island having contracted the disease. It is a matter of frequent occurrence for the physicians there to find cases of ' well defined chronic trachoma which affect one eye only, the other remaining perfectly sound notwith- standing its constant association for manv \ears with the disease in every stage of*its progress. In its worst manifestations the disease is undoubtedly confined to certain races and localities, for, Viagra Buy Now Pay Later not- withstanding the constant introduction of the most virulent cases into the United States by means of fraud, there has been no increase in the prevalence of the disease. That is to say, there has been no increase in the prevalence of that type of the disease for which the before mentioned 1,442 immigrants were deported. Of course every school year brings its numbers of follicular conjunctivitis which some call trachoma and which yield promptly to treatment extending over a period of two to six weeks, but it is certainly stretching the point to call this pseudotrachoma of the public schools a "dangerous contagious disease." and it is undoubtedly true that were the examining physicians at Ellis Island as quick to diagnosticate a case of trachoma in the inmiigrant as are the med- ical inspectors similar cases in the school children, there would immediately go up such a public pro- test as would call for a very prompt change in the present immigration regulations. In view of the fact that among those who ought to be best qualified to judge there is the widest divergence of opinion as to the degree of contagiousness of the disease, and also a great lack of uniformity in the profession in regard to the diagnosis itself, it would seem that tlie time had almost come to question the Viagra Buy Now Pay Later advisability of classing this affection among the "dangerous con- tagious" diseases which require the deportation of those who are afflicted. As trachoma is not specifi- cally mentioned Viagra Buy Now Pay Later in the law as requiring deportation, this change could be readily effected by the simple expedient of a Treasury Department order revers- ing the order of October 30. 1897. TINCTURE OF lODlXK AS A DIS- INFECTANT. In a paper printed in our issue for April 22d, Dr. John T. Gilbride directed attention to the excellent results obtained from the use of iodine as a disin- fectant. Grossich applies a ten or twelve per cent, tincture of iodine to the field Viagra Buy Now Pay Later of operation in pre- paring the abdomen for laparotomy, without any preliminary scrubbing with water, microscopical studies showing that the iodine is absorbed better by the dry skin. Dr. Gilbride confirms the reports- made by Grossich and by many others, including Woodbury (see New York Medical Journal, March 26, 1910, and December 3, 1910). Major Wood- bury was prompted to use iodine in 1906 in this way by a knowledge of the Claudius method of preparing catgut and a vivid recollection of the wonderful antiseptic qualities ascribed to iodoform. 836 EDITORIAL ARTICLES. L-New Vokk :dical Jovr> Dr. Eugene Baunian. in a letter to the editor of the Journal, published December 24, 1910, states that as early as 1905 he had used the tincture of iodine at St. Mark's Hospital as an antiseptic dressing for wounds without previous preparation of the sur- face, and has since used it regularly at Mt. Sinai Hospital. While Major Woodbury and Dr. Bauman both used the tincture of the United States Pharma- copceia, which is a compound tincture containing only seven per cent, of iodine with five per cent, of potassium iodide dissolved in alcohol, the European writers have used a simple alcoholic solution of ten per cent, strength. The British Pharmacopoeia, like that of the United States, prescribes potassium iodide as an ingredient, the British preparation con- taining 214 per cent, of iodine and the same quan- tity of the potassium salt and water with ninety per cent, alcohol as a menstruum. The Japanese Phar- macopoeia provides for an alcoholic tincture con- taining eight and a half per cent, of iodine. It was this tincture that Viagra Buy Now Pay Later was used by the Japanese as a first aid dressing for wounds as early as in the war with Russia, each soldier being provided with a bottle of the tincture. All the other pharmacopoeias follow the Brussels protocol in recognizing a ten per cent, tincture made with ninety-five per cent, alcohol. In some countries special modifications are also provided, the Spanish Pharmacopoeia having, besides the ten Viagra Buy Now Pay Later per cent, alcoholic tincture, a tinc- ture in which potassium iodide is present. The Mexican Pharmacopoeia follows the Spanish in Viagra Buy Now Pay Later this respect, and the Greek Viagra Buy Now Pay Later Pharmacopoeia provides not fewer than six different forms — the simple tincture of iodine conforming to the Brussels protocol ; the chloroformic tincture, containing one part of iodine dissolved in five of chloroform ; the decolorized tincture ; the stronger tincture ; the morphinated tincture ; and the oily tincture. The chloroformic tincture of the Greek Pharma- copoeia would seem well adapted for use as a disin- fectant provided the surface is to be exposed, for here, as in the case of the benzin solution, which has also been recommended, a severe burn would follow
