JS Pasricha, James Thanzama, Ravi Shankara Reddy
March-April 1989, 55(2):131-134
Nasal filter is a simple device consisting of a net mounted in a frame made to fit inside the nostrils. These filters thus are not visible from outside. If a person uses the nasal filters the .u particulate material from the air that the person breathes gets removed and in case the person is allergic to an inhalant antigen, he stops having the allergic symptoms. We tried nasal filters on two females patients aged 32 and 7 years respectively, having topics dermatitis the age of I year, caused by an inhalant (indicated by seasonal aggravations, and spontaneous recovery during brief visits to other towns). Unrig a follow-up of 2 1/2 and 2 years respectively, both the patients experienced almost 80-90% relief from the dermatitis and required only animal treatment.

JS Pasricha, KA Seetharam, Urminiala Das
March-April 1989, 55(2):98-104
Our regime for the treatment of pemphigus consists of 100mg dexamethasone dissolved in 5% glucose given by a slow intravenous drip over 1-2 hours and repeated on 3 consecutive days. On the first day, 500 mg cyclophosphamide is also given in the same drip. Such dexamethasone cyclophosphamide pulses (DCP) are repeated once a month. In between the (DCP), the patient is given only 50 mg cyclophosphamide daily orally. During the first few methods of starting this treatment, most patients continue to get relapses of pemphigus lesions in between the DCP (phase I). After a variable period however, almost all patients stop having such relapses, but we continue to give once monthly DCP for atleast 6 months (phase II), After which the DCP is stopped and the patient continues to take 50 mg cyclophosphamide daily orally for a further period of one year (phase III). At the end of thos phase all treatment is stopped and the patients followed-up for any relapse (phase IV). Follow up of the first 100 patients, pemphigus vulgaris (92), pemphigus follaccus (6) and pemphigus erythematosus (2), has
