Gastric aspiration and lavage in acute poisoning.
TLDR
Ampicillin appears to be at least as effective as penicillin and streptomycin even in the comparatively small doses used in this trial, and there would appear to be an advantage in domiciliary practice in using a drug that can be given by mouth, and if an allowance is made for the cost of giving injections there is little difference in the expense.

Paraquat Poisoning—Lung Transplantation
TLDR
The technical feasibility of human lung transplantation has again been demonstrated and it has been shown that infection does not necessarily pose an insuperable problem, at any rate if, as in the case described, there was no preoperative pulmonary infection in either recipient or donor. Expand
Nitrazepam—a Safe Hypnotic
TLDR
In 27 patients nitrazepam (Mogadon) taken in acute overdosage produced no untoward effects except drowsiness, even when 80 tablets were consumed, and it was concluded that nitrazEPam is a safe and effective hypnotic. Expand
