Abstract

Summary

  • 1.  The immediate problem of malaria is one of therapeutics rather than sanitation.
  • 2.  The accepted death rate of 2.89 per cent in ordinary malaria, and 26.6 in pernicious malaria, deserves serious attention.
  • 3.  In a series of 8000 cases ocurring in tropical practice the mortality was reduced to 0.2 per cent for general malaria, and to 6 per cent for the malignant types.
  • 4.  The arsphenamines promptly abort acute attacks in all forms of malaria, and are specifics in the tertian field.
  • 5.  Neo-arsphenamine in concentrated solutions—as much as 0.9 gram in 2 cc.—fulfills all essential requirements of the higher dilutions. Technic of injection is given.
  • 6.  Neo-arsphenamine by rectum is efficacious.
  • 7.  Colloidal quinine (Colobiases de Quinine—Dausse), in doses of 1 grain (0.065), is therapeutically equivalent to 15 grains (1.0) of ordinary quinine salts, and is non-toxic.
  • 8.  Colloidal manganese and iron (Diéménal) is antiperiodic and reconstructive.
  • 9.  The management of acute, chronic, cachectic and pernicious malaria is outlined.
