Dr. Soule Discusses
Cures For Leprosy
(Continued from Page 1)
so-called "cobra treatment" has been
used, by which the leper is bitten by
% cobra, under the theory that if he
recovers from the cobra bite he will
get over his leprosy. In China the
time-honored "chaulmoogra" oil is
still widely used, as it is in the Phil-
ippines, where it is injected under
the skin and between the muscles of
the patient, a very painful process
which Dr. Victor G. Heiser, author of
"An American Doctor's Odyssey,"
played an important part in institut-
ing. Iodine has been added to the
solution, as well as various other
changes. Soluble sodium salts of the
fatty acids of chaulmoogra are a fa-
vorite variation. It has not, how-
ever, proved particularly effective.
"Individuals rarely die of lep-
rosy," Dr. Soule said. "Instead, they
succumb to tuberculosis or other mal-
adies after being reduced to a weak-
ened condition by leprosy." Children
are considered especially susceptible
to the disease, and in the leper colony
at Malakai in the Philippines the
precaution of separating babies from
their mothers at birth has been tak-
en, and proved highly successful. On
the other hand, while a number of
those who were left with their moth-
ers till the age of six months con-
tracted the disease.
The various types of disease, nodu-
lar, anaesthetic, and mixed, were
shown by slides. The nodules break
down in the later stages of the afflic-
tion, and ulcerate. Extreme cases,
which never occur among well-cared-
for patients, result in the frightful
appearance which has given the
disease its "untouchable" reputation.
