The site, nature, magnitude, and duration of fluid and electrolyte loss into the small intestine during the acute and recovery phase of human cholera was defined in 27 Indian patients. 11 subjects without cholera served as controls. The marker perfusion technique employed was shown, in preliminary experiments, to measure accurately jejunal and ileal fluid(More)
Despite the progress that has been made in the treatment of cholera, mortality rates from this disease remain high in rural areas where intravenous fluids are not readily available. The authors have therefore conducted controlled studies into the efficacy of a simpler form of maintenance therapy-the administration of glucose-containing electrolyte solutions(More)

It is a constant threat to cornea and orbital soft tissue. Moreover, it causes social embarrassment due to chronic watering from the eye. This study was conducted to find out the(More)
The nature and magnitude of fluid and electrolyte loss into the small intestine were defined by the marker perfusion technique in patients with acute undifferentiated diarrhea (AUD) in the tropics. The patients were divided into two groups according to their small bowel bacteriologic findings, namely those with a predominant Escherichia coli flora and those(More)
