------------------------------1. Conference scope and objectives The purpose of the conference is to enlarge awareness of the need and appreciation for the benefits of river rehabilitation. It will
A 5-year study of patients with pulmonary tuberculosis in a concurrent comparison of home and sanatorium treatment for one year with isoniazid plus PAS.
TLDR
The findings in the present report are very encouraging, particularly for developing countries such as India, where tuberculosis is a major problem and sanatorium beds are very few.
A controlled study of the influence of segregation of tuberculous patients for one year on the attack rate of tuberculosis in a 5-year period in close family contacts in South India.
TLDR
It is shown that it is possible in South India to obtain extremely good co-operation from a group of families over a period of several years and reaffirm that close family contacts of patients treated at home were at no additional risk of developing tuberculosis, provided the patients received effective chemotherapy.
OBSERVATIONS ON THE PROTECTIVE EFFECT OF BCG VACCINATION IN A SOUTH INDIAN RURAL POPULATION.
TLDR
This is the first controlled trial on BCG undertaken in an Asiatic population, and a statistically significant protection from the BCG vaccination is now demonstrated.

A SOCIOLOGICAL INQUIRY INTO AN URBAN TUBERCULOSIS CONTROL PROGRAMME IN INDIA.
TLDR
The study reveals several fundamental weaknesses in the treatment organization in this particular programme, but concludes that a great proportion of the problems of inadequate treatment can be dealt with by improved administration and organization.
A SOCIOLOGICAL STUDY OF AWARENESS OF SYMPTOMS AMONG PERSONS WITH PULMONARY TUBERCULOSIS.
TLDR
It is epidemiologically and economically justified to base tuberculosis control programmes on the persons who seek assistance because of worry over symptoms, but only when services satisfying the needs of the already worried tuberculosis sufferers are well developed, may mass case-finding be considered as an additional measure.
THE PREVENTION AND TREATMENT OF ISONIAZID TOXICITY IN THE THERAPY OF PULMONARY TUBERCULOSIS. 2. AN ASSESSMENT OF THE PROPHYLACTIC EFFECT OF PYRIDOXINE IN LOW DOSAGE.
TLDR
Results are given which show that the B-complex preparation is fully effective in preventing peripheral neuropathy in patients receiving the same high dosage of isoniazid, and that this is due to the small pyridoxine content of only 6 mg daily, and not to any of its other constituents.
The use of mathematical models in the study of the epidemiology of tuberculosis.
TLDR
Examples of the use of epidemetric models which reflect the epidemiological trend of tuberculosis are given, developed and utilized in other social sciences.
