A. K Aggarwal, D Behera, S. K Malik, L Kumar, P Talwar
June 1989, 7(2):67-69
Skin hypersensitivity testing and estimation of precipitating antibodies against A. fumigatus were carried out in 55 adult patients of bronchial asthma. Twenty percent of the patients showed an immediate hypersensitivity reaction and 7.2% showed a delayed type Ill reaction. Precipitin antibodies were present in 5.4% of cases. There were three possible cases (5.4%) of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis among these 55 patients. Pertinent literature has been reviewed.

A Study Of The Tuberculin Test And Its Correlation With The In Vitro Responses
V Vijayalakshmi, D. V Rao, K. J. R Murthy, S. N Jain
June 1989, 7(2):63-66
The results of the tuberculin test vary and the reports are disparate. In the present study BCG vaccinated and unvaccinated normal healthy children and children with Tuberculous meningitis (TBM) (disseminated form) and primary complex disease (PC) (localised form) were evaluated with respect to their Mantoux (Mx) status and leukocyte migration inhibition test to purified protein derivative (PPD). A sizable number of the BCG vaccinated children were negative to the Mx test, but the in vitro responses (leukocyte migration inhibition test) to PPD of these children were normal. The negative skin test responses were thought to be due to the environmental mycobacteria. Almost equal number of children with TBM were positive and negative to the Mx test; though most of the children with PC were positive. The study therefore suggested that tuberculin test alone may not indicate the protective immune status of the child, conferred by BCG.

A Study Of Short - Course Chemotherapy For Pulmonary Tuberculosis Under Programme (Field) Conditions In Pondicherry
V. K Padmanabhan
June 1989, 7(2):79-83
A short-course regimen has been implemented in Pondicherry with the objective of obtaining information on its feasibility, acceptability, toxicity and efficacy under programme (field) conditions. A total of 1441 patients received a six month period short-course regimen of lsoniazid (300 mg), Rifampicin (450 mg) and Pyrazinamide (1.5 g) daily for two months initially followed by Rifampicin (600 mg) and lsoniazid (600 mg) twice a week for the next four months. Ninety-eight percent of the patients had either mild or moderate disease radiologically. Chemotherapy was completed by 68% of the patients. One of the patients had smear positivity at the end of chemotherapy; 81% showed radiographic improvement. Successful short-course chemotherapy is feasible under existing programme conditions
