Quantitative Assay of Umbilical Cord Blood Porphyrins - a Spectrophotometric Study
SC Sharma, F Handa, KS Sidhu
July-August 1979, 45(4):265-268
Quantitative assay of free erythrocyte porphyrins was done in umbilical cord blood of 100 newborn babies by spectrophotometric method. The mean level of free erythrocyte protoporphyrin in umbilical cord blood was found to be74.56 ug/100 ml packed erythrocytes with a standard deviation of +- 0.93 respectively. Relationship between free erythrocyte coproporphyrin and their correlation with period of gestation, birth weight and sex of the new borns were found to be statistically significant

Clinicobacteriological Study of Acne Vulgaris
D Gupta, D Mukherjee, OP Singh
July-August 1979, 45(4):269-271
The aetiological relationship Propionibacterium acnes in acne vulgaris has been suggested. A clinicobacteriological study in 45 patients suffering from acne vulgaris was conducted for the first time in Indian patients. P acnes could be isolated from 18 (40.0%) and other propionibacterium species from 9 (20.0%) of the 45 patients studied. No correlation of culture positivity with the sex of the patient or duration and grade of the disease could be established, P acnes antibodies were, tested for in 33 and 20 patients sera by agglutination and immunodiffusion tests respectively. Immunodiffusion test was positive in 5 (25 %) of the 33-patients and in only 1 (9.9%) of the 11 controls studied. The difference in the incidence of P acnes agglutinating antibodies in patients versus control was statistically significant (p = < 0.001).

Comparative Investigation with Fluprednylidene Acetate (decoderma)
L Marquis, CK Jagavkar
July-August 1979, 45(4):284-289
The therapeutic efficacy of a new fluorinated steriod, 0. 1% fluprednylidene -21 acetate (Decoderm) cream was compared to betamethasone and triamcinolone in two double blind clinical trials. All the three topical steroids were effective in various steroid responsive dermatoses within one week and the beneficial effects continued throughout the four weeks of the trials. The various signs and symptoms, such as erythema, pruritus, oedema, exudation, scaling, vesicles, crusting, lichenification and burning, improved significantly with each of the steroid under trial. Fluprednylindine-21 acetate (Decoderm) cream represents an important addition to the present,y available topical steroids.
