dc.description.abstract(a). Plasmo4uine combined with quinine is undoubtedly the best treatment for disciplined bodies of people such of those of armies, ships, institutes and hospitals where the dosage can be regulated according to the idiosyncracy of the patient to toxic symptoms.en
dc.description.abstractThe dose of plasmoquine tested, namely 0.08 grms., combined with 20 grains (1.3 grms.) of quinine is the treatment of choice, and should be continued for 28 days.en
dc.description.abstract(b). The general populus must still continue to be treated with quinine and tonic treatment, namely 30 grains (1.94 grins.) of quinine daily for 14 days followed by 10 grains daily given with iron and arsenic tonic for 6 weeks.en
