Studies on the Shape of Human Nails in Normal Subjects
DN Chhatrapati, GL Purohit
January-February 1968, 34(1):9-17
Measurements on the normal human nails were done in 75 males and 35 females subjects. The average length and breadth of each digit was more in males than in females but the L: B ratios were nearly the same. The length was largest in thumb and smallest in little finger in that descending order. The breadth goes on decreasing from thumb, middle, ring, index and little finger. The L:B ratio is maximum in the thumb and minimum in the index finger. The shape of the nails is classified as square nail long nail, cylindrical nail, large nail and broad nail. Another classification of the shape based on L:B is suggested; it is as long square and broad. The broad is classified from grade I to VIII and the long in grade 1 to II. No significant difference was found in right handed and left handed persons.

An Improved Procedure of Demonstration of N Gonorrhoea Intracellularly in Pus Cells by the Direct Fluorescent Antibody (fa) Staining Technique
GM Nair, CW Chacko
January-February 1968, 34(1):1-4
The immediate direct fluorescent staining of smears of genitourinary discharges from patient's for quick and specific diagnosis of gonorrhoea is suggested to have been improved by the pre-treatment of smears with the Biuret reagent containing Bromophenol blue. Non-specific fluorescence of background material is thereby eliminated so that N gonorrhoae are more easily and specifically identified in pus cells for quick diagnosis of gonorrhoea particularly in the infected female.

ASM Hossain Tasaddoque
January-February 1968, 34(1):29-40
Over rapid but uncontrolled urbanisation has been shown to have an impact on venereal disease, which, therefore, require planned urbanisation with improvements in environmental health and housing facilities. Control of gonococcal and other venereal infections require improvements of the social and economic conditions including recreational facilities and protection of the community by suppression of clandestine sexual promiscuity.
