This is an ORIGINAL, not a reprint or print-on-demand copy! Written by Henry John MD, whom the book's Foreword says had treated 1,400 patients with diabetes, TECHNIQUE IN THE MANAGEMENT OF DIABETIC PATIENTS was published in 1927 by the William Feather Company, Cleveland OH.

The 62-page hardbound book covers those techniques, using 28 black/white photos and drawings to illustrate the text. The book is in Very Good condition - covers have a couple of very minor scuffs.

Kilduffe, director of laboratories for Atlantic City Hospital, NJ. It was published in 1926 by Lea & Febiger, New York. In the 203-page hardbound book, the author discusses basic principles of the test, technical principles, mechanism of the reaction, general considerations concerning the serological study of syphilis, anticomplementary reactions, reaction to syphilitic infection, false negative reactions, and more. The information is illustrated with numerous black/white charts and graphs. Condition of the book is Very Good, although it is ex lib with the usual library markings.

A classic study in nutrition, Toward the Conquest of Beriberi was written by Robert R. Williams and published in 1961 by the Harvard University Press, Cambridge. The book was designed, says the author, to view events that have revealed the cause, cure and means of prevention of beriberi; instruct those who will be working to complete the conquest of beriberi; and reveal various methods of research that might be useful to those who face similar problems in other fields of human welfare. Noting that the world's knowledge of tropical medicine is a direct outgrowth of European colonialism that left many Asians to feel there were injustices in how they were treated, and that East-West relations are now struggling toward a new sense of unit and fair sharing of resources, the author says this study of beriberi is an excellent example of the joining of cultures for mutual advantage. The 338-page hardbound book is illustrated with 48 tables, figures and other illustrations. It is in Very Good condition, although it is ex lib with the usual library markings. Covers show some very minor stains on the front and minor edge/corner wear. Inside pages have no apparent defects. (5336)

The 453-page hardbound book covers the coming-of-age of this area of considerable practical interest, say the authors, since diseases caused by fungi or in which fungi may be suspected as etiologic, constitute a sizable percentage of the disorders affecting the skin, and to a lesser degree, other organs of the body.

The Health Research Group founded by Ralph Nader joined Sidney M. Wolf M.D. and Christopher Coley in writing PILLS THAT DON'T WORK -- Prescription Drugs that Lack Evidence of Effectiveness, a book that has been called 'must for medical students and doctors but, most importantly, for consumers.' The 223-page softcover book was published in 1981 by Farrar Straus Giroux, New York. Within the covers is an astounding amount of information on prescription drugs -- ineffective dosage forms, ineffective drugs, combination drug products and identical drugs. There's a section on treatments for common diseases -- cough, cold, allergy products; drugs for heart pain, for circulatory disorders of head and limbs, for digestive disorders; and drugs applied directly to the skin, eye or ear. Another section provides a list of 607 ineffective drugs and drug products; another provides a history of ineffective prescription drugs. A glossary and bibliography provide more help in using the book. The authors say that one of every eight prescriptions filled in the United States is for drug not considered effective by the government's own standards. Since all drugs involve risks, this lack of effectiveness means you are exposing yourself to dangers without gaining compensating benefits. It's a frightening thought! This book is again Near Fine condition with no defects we can find beyond slight sun-fading and a single crease along the spine. If you use prescription drugs, you'll want to take a look this one!
