Comparative Clinical Trial of Embramine (mebryl)
BV Satyanarayana, B Rao Narashimha, PV Chalapati
January-February 1975, 41(1):26-27
A comparative clinical trial of Mebryl and Dimethindene was undertaken. Forty three patients, belonging to either sex, and suffering from conditions like pruritus, urticaria, contact dermatitis, neurodermatitis, lichenified eczema and infectious eczematoid dennatitis were selected in each group. Mebryl had quick therapeutic effect and was found to be extremely effective in case of urticaria and pruritus. Good to excellent response was obtained in 36 cases on Dimethindene therapy, No significant side effects were encountered in either of the treatment groups.

Recurrence of Herpes Zoster in the Same Dermatome
PA Sarojini, BKH Nair
January-February 1975, 41(1):28-29
A case of herpes zoster recurring in the same dermatome 10 years after the original attack is reported. The pathogenesis of herpes zoster is discussed. Recurrent herpes simplex zosteriformis is ruled out by animal inoculation. No precipitating factor could be detected other than exposure to a case of chickenpox. The present case strengthens the postulate that herpes zoster is produced by the reactivation of a latent virus present in the sensory ganglia and nerve sheath and that this reactivation can occur on more than one occasion.

Mmunological Trends in Leprosy
SS Narvekar, PV Chabalani
January-February 1975, 41(1):15-18
The long incubation period in leprosy, variable manifestations of disease viz. lepromatous, tuberculoid, indeterminate etc. strongly, indicate the possible role of immune mechanism, particularly so, when M. leprae has low infectivity. Immune mechanism may possibly be affected by nutritional, genetic, hortnon2il and biochemical factors. Chakravarty and Vogal (1973) have examined large number of identical and non-identical twins in endemic areas. They find high incidence of leprosy in monozygotes than in dizygotes twins. In malnutrition, immunity responses are impaired, so also in lepromatous leprosy. Whether malnutrition which is so often present in leprosy patients, aggravate the disease course is a hypothesis. Appearance of lazarine leprosy in persons with malnutrition and hypoproteinaemia is known.

Clinico-epidemiological Study on 189 Cases of Donovanosis
BMS Bedi, BR Garg, Sardari Lal, C Nicholas
January-February 1975, 41(1):13-13
A clinico-eoidemiological study on 189 cases of donovanosis seen during the year 197 1 1973 is presented from the coastline climate of Pondicherry. A high prevalence rate of 6. 1 % has been met with. The disease could be convincingly demonstrated in 50% of the sexual partners that could be examined and was shown in 15 couples i.e. in both the husband and wife. This shows beyond doubt the venereal origin of donovanosis. Streptomycin is the treatment of choice with cure rate of 90.8% in the treated cases. In resistant cases or those who could not tolerate streptomycin, achromycin was found quite effective.
