Further Evaluation of Griseofulvin Therapy in Lichhen Planus
VN Sehgal
July-August 1974, 40(4):156-158
Griseofulvin-FP in the dosage of 500 mg daily was administered in 47 patients of lichen planus. The duration of therapy varied from 3 to 7 weeks. The results were evaluated by subsidence of itching and flattening of the lesions. The therapy was very effective, but the regressions of symptoms and signs were directly proportional to the duration of therapy. The most favourable results were obtained with therapy extended for 6 weeks and above. The possible mechanism of action of the drug in lichen planus is outlined.

AK Garg, DN Mulay
July-August 1974, 40(4):143-148
Efficacy of hamycin (greasy and non-greasy base) ointment in the topical treatment of dermatophytoses has been investigated. Results of the treatment with greasy base ointment were unsatisfactory since 14.7% of the cases only got cured. An increase in the concentration of antibiotic from 0.25 to 1.0% in the ointment did not show any appreciable difference in the efficacy of the drug. Treatment with non-greasy base ointment gave better results since 45.6% of the cases were completely cured.

Retinoic Acid in the Treatment of Acne
L Marquis, CK Jagavkar
July-August 1974, 40(4):162-172
A study of 50 cases of acne treated with topical0.05% retinoic acid lotion, applied at bed time, conducted at St. Gorge's Hospital, Bombay is presented. 74% of cases (37 patients) showed a good to excellent response. The comedone count showed a remarkable drop by the twelfth week of treatment and the papules and pustules, responded to a lesser extent. Our impressions are that this topical application is ideal in comedoneacne. When papules and pustules predominate, retinoic acid therapy may be combined with antibiotic preparations. The side effects observed were minimal, only 7 patients reported itching and excoriation which were mild and transient.

Chemoprophylaxis in Pyodermas
Gurmohan Singh
July-August 1974, 40(4):181-184
Effect of prophylactic use of-antibiotics for preventing staphylococcal infections of skin was studied experimentally. Healthy human volunteers were given pencillin or demethylchlor tetracycline in usual therapeutic doses -and later challenged with staphylococci. In 2 of 3 subjects, the prophylactically given drug could not ;prevent the experimental infection, even though the challenging organisms were sensitive to the respective antibiotics in vitro. When the drug was continued even after the staphylococci were inoculated, 50% showed evidence of clinical infection. Diphtheroids had complete disappearance and staphylococcus epidermidis became resistant to the antibiotic used even though its quantum remained at a constant level.
