We report on 61 women with postmenopausal osteoporosis who were treated with either plain sodium fluoride (NaF) capsules or enteric-coated NaF tablets for 4 years, in whom possible therapeutic and toxic effects were monitored. In these patients there was a mean increase in axial bone mineral mass, assessed by neutron activation analysis, of 26.2% +/- 2.4%(More)

Since the first description of ocular onchocerciasis in Africa was published (Hissette, 1931) many records have been made of the ocular lesions (e.g. Bryant, 1935; Hissette, 1938; Toulant and Boithias, 1952a, 1952b, 1954; World Health Organization Regional Conference on Onchocerciasis, 1956). However, no detailed account has been written of the progress of(More)

In 1959 a population of 638 persons over the age of seven years, suffering from heavy endemic onchocerciasis in the Sudan-Savannah of West Africa was examined, and approximately half were allotted to a group for treatment with suramin (up to a total of 4-2 g for healthy adults). In 1973 and 1974 it was possible to re-examine 145 persons allotted to the(More)
Forty-one women with idiopathic postmenopausal osteoporosis have been followed for 2 years after initiation of sodium fluoride at 40-50 mg/day, given together with a daily calcium supplement of 1 gram and vitamin D2, at 50,000 IU weekly. Histological and histomorphometric analyses were done on bone biopsies taken prior to and after 1 year of treatment (mean(More)
Vertebral morphometry on thoracic and lumbar spine radiographs and bone mass measurements were carried out on 215 patients investigated for postmenopausal osteoporosis. Bone mineral mass was measured on the central third of the skeleton by neutron activation analysis and the result, normalized for body size, expressed as a calcium bone index (CaBI). The(More)
Notes of Original Lesion.t-A European male, aged 51, was admitted to hospital at 7 p.m. on February 11, 1952, within half an hour of being bitten by a viperine snake on the dorsum of the left foot (specimen identified as Echis carinatus). He was treated immediately by tourniquet and incisions of the bitten area under pentothal; 10 ml. antivenine were(More)
