Changes in age incidence of kala-azar in India.
D Basu, KK Mallik
January-March 1995, 39(1):26-26
The mean age of 80 kala-azar cases was 20. 26 +/- 10.68 years, much higher than previously reported. This higher age incidence is probably related to fall of herd immunity particularly in the young adults resulting from less chance of natural infection during their childhood at such times when kala-azar in India had been largely controlled.

The role of secondary sex ratios in the declining sex ratio of India.
RK Sachar, RK Soni
January-March 1995, 39(1):12-5
The sex ratio in India has been gradually declining since the beginning of this century during the intercensus period of 1981-91, this ratio declined from 933 to 929. In the past the difference in sex ratios was wholly attributed to higher mortality amongst the females. However date for the years 1990-92 on secondary sex ratios i.e. sex ratio at birth presented in this paper suggest that the difference in sex ratio can also be attributed to a statistically significant higher number of males being born most probably as a result of selective abortion of female fetuses.

January-March 1995, 39(1):4-7
A cross sectional survey was carried in an Urban Slum Community in Bombay having a population of 60,000. A total of 393 women in reproductive age group were screened for VDRL reactivity. The highest prevalence was in 15 to 29 years of age group. The sero-positivity rate at 1:8 dilution and above was 0.50%.

R Jayakumar, A Chandramohan, R Govindrajan, VD Padmanaban
January-March 1995, 39(1):8-11
A rapid dot enzyme immuno assay (Dot ELISA) for rabies antibody estimation has been standardized in which nitrocellulose sheet has been used as a solid support absorbing a commercial tissue culture rabies vaccine as antigen. The test was compared with a standard plate ELISA test. The results were comparable and the student "t' test for proportion revealed that plate ELISA test is significantly better (P 0.05) when compared to Dot ELISA for the number of sera with titre < 0.5 Iu/ml and in the case of > 0.5 IU/ml Dot ELISA is found to be better over plate ELISA test at the same significance level.
