Beriberi. — Heiser remarks that so much evidence has accumulated that unpolished rice is an important factor in the prevention of beriberi that it is deemed most desirable to bring about its gen- eral use in the Philippines, for a few years at least, in order to test the theory thoroughly. At the most, no harm can result, and on the other hand there is every promise that many hundreds of lives nay be saved and a still greater morbidity avoided. Experimental investigations made by Viagra Generico Italia Dr. Aron showed that a rice which has only been polished to a point where it still contains 0.4 per cent, of phos- phorus pentoxide may be regarded as incapable of producing beriberi. Almost coincidently. similar conclusions were announced by Highet. For pur- poses of convenience, then, a rice that contains less than 0.4 per cent, of phosphorus pentoxide is re- garded as polished rice, and that which contains a greater percentage of phosphorus pentoxide is re- garded as unpolished rice. Accordingly, a bill was drafted which had for its purpose the bringing about of the general use of unpolished rice in those places where rice was the staple article of diet. After considerable discussion with physicians, law- yers, legislators, and others, it was deemed advis- able to attempt this with a law that would impose a tax of 5 centavos (2^ cents U. S. currency) per kilo on all polished rice sold, whether foreign or domestic. On account of Viagra Generico Italia the successful experience with unpolished rice in the prophylaxis Viagra Generico Italia of beriberi in the Philippines during the year, and since these data Viagra Generico Italia confirm the work of Fraser, Stanton, Aron, Kilbourne. de Haan, and Highet, as reported at the last annual meeting of the Far Eastern Association of Tropical ^Medicine, it is believed that the time haj come for the medical profession to aid in com- pleting the last step in the test which promises to place another weapon Viagra Generico Italia in the hands of prophylactic medicine for the eradication of another of the world's serious and costly diseases. 4. Animal Experimentation. — Churchman shows what animal experimentation has done for syphilis. In a period of alxiut seven years the cause of the disease has been established, a specific reac- tion for its detection has been discovered, its suc- cessful transmission to animals has been accom- plished, and a drug of apparently first rate import- ance has been advanced for its treatment. Those who make practical achievement the final test of the value of experiiuental work, could hardly ask for more convincing evidence than these splendid re- sults provide. 7. Peripheral Neural Atrophy of the Thenar Muscles. — Donley says Viagra Generico Italia that the symptoms of peripheral neural atrophy of the thenar muscles are precise and may be easil}- recognized. They are atrophy and paralysis (or weakness) of those mus- cles supplied by the thenar branch of the median. In the two cases recorded by him no sensory changes whatever could be discovered on careful examination, nor did the patients complain of any changes referable to the lesion. The Viagra Generico Italia muscles af- fected were, in both instances, Viagra Generico Italia the abductor pollicis, the opponens pollicis, and the superficial head of the flexor brevis pollicis. In these muscles Viagra Generico Italia was marked wasting, and they failed to respond to elec- trical stimulation through the median at the elbow ; when the current was applied to the muscles directly there was no response to faradism Viagra Generico Italia and a very fee- ble reaction of degeneration to galvanism. Volun- tar>- movements in the wasted muscles were abol- ished, and nearly a year later showed little, if any. return. He never observed fibrillary twitchings in the affected muscles, nor were they sensitive on pressure. All the other intrinsic muscles of the hand were normal in respect of voluntary move- ments, nutrition, and electrical response. The dis- tinguishing marks of peripheral neural atrophy ot the thenar muscles are: i. Precise limitation of atrophy and motor defect to the opponens pollicis. abductor pollicis, and superficial head of the flexor brevis pollicis ; 2, reactions of degeneration confined to these muscles ; 3, absence of subjective sensory
