Author Oshima, Yoshio| Yamada, Naoharu| Mifune, Masaaki|
Abstract 1. Radon content of 166 thermal waters in IWAI, TOTTORI YOSHIOKA, HAMAMURA, TOGO, SEKIGANE, MISASA, and KAlKE Hot Springs was measured by I. M. Fontactoscope in the years 1950-1951. Of which 66 samples showed a radon content over 30×10(-10) curie units per liter. Namely, 50 springs in Misasa, 6 in Sekigane, 9 in Hamamura, and one in Togo belonged to the radioactive spring in the definition by Ministry of Social Welfare. The highest Radon content (1150×10(10) curie units per liter) was recorded in Hisuino-Yu in Misasa, where five springs had a radon content over 360×10(-10) curie units per liter. 2. No marked difference was proved between the results obtained this time and the data in the former reports concerning the radon content of these thermal springs. 3. Radon content proved higher in the springs which issue from granite than in the springs of other districts. No definite relation was proved between the radon content and water temperature. The radon content was generally high in simple thermals or in weak sodium chloride springs, low in sulfated springs and in saline springs which had a comparatively high sulfate content.

Author Morinaga, Hiroshi|
Abstract The author investigated the thyroid glands of 1480 school children (aged from 6 to 14) living in the vicinity of Yakage, the south-western rural district of Okayama Prefecture, and 1516 out-patients of Yakage Hospital, in 1950. The incidence of struma among the school children was 4.6 per cent and among the out-patients 4.7% on an average, and the percentage of struma in the spring (7.8%) was higher than in the summer (2.98%). This result suggests that thyroid glands are in some way susceptible to seasonal influences, and it is therefore necessary to consider the effect of season during investigation. The white blood pictures of seven patients showed no specific findings.

Title Alternative MEDICAL STUDIES ON THE RURAL PEOPLE (I) CLINICAL AND STATISTICAL OBSERVATIONS ON HOOKWORM DISEASE IN RURAL DISTRICTS
FullText URL pitsr_014_045_050.pdf
Author Morinaga, Hiroshi|
Abstract The author studied statistically 160 cases of hookworm infection who had been admitted to Misasa Branch of Okayama University Hospital, Misasa Hot Springs in Tottori prefecture, during 1946~1949 and 162 cases of out-patients with anchylostomiasis in Yakage Hospital, Okayama Prefecture, during 1949~1950. The clinical findings were as follows: (1). Females showed a higher incidence than males and the incidence ratio of infected persons to total out-patients increased with age up to the 50~69 years group. (2). The most patients consulted our hospital for the first time in April~May and in August, and 62 per cent of cases came within 3 months scince they had noticed disorders in some way, but 22% remained at home without medical cure more than a year. (3). Chief subjective complaints were palpitation of heart (35.3%), lassitude of legs (31.2%), pains in the abdomen (22.9%), feeling of dizziness (21.6%) and so on. (4). Laboratory findings: The total number of erythrocytes was between 1.23 and 5.54 millions per cubic millimeter and a moderate anemia almost always developed in the hookworm disease (77.9% of all cases). The number of white cells was normal or slightly increased. Relative or absolute eosinophilia was recognized in 83.5% of all patients. Wassermann's test was positive in 20%, and Takata's reaction positive in 53% of the cases. The acidity of the gastric juice was lower than normal. Hypo- and anacidity were verified in 58%. Both albumen and urobilinogen test in urine were positive in 5.4% of 61 cases. Sugar in none. (5). Treatment: Thymol, tetrachlorethylene and oil of chenopodium were used alternately to remove the worms. The eggs in stool became negative after 3-4 times of the administration of anthelmintics in 76 per cent of 151 cases. As mentioned above, the patients infected with hookworm had various functional disorders of bodies, but they consulted the hospital only when the farmer's busy season began and their trouble became unbearable. And then the recovery of anemia took a month or two. Prof. Kitayama reported that the cold environment under 9°C. in the winter had perished the larva of hookworm in the soil. From these viewpoints, the author proposed that examination and cure of hookworms should be carried out in the winter, the slack season for farming, to prevent the fall of working ability due to anchylostomiasis during the busy farming seasons.

Abstract There are many experimental reports and clinical observations about the internal use of thermal waters on carbohydrate metabolism, and alkaline springs, alkaline common salt springs and sulphur springs are used for the balneological therapy of diabetic patients. The author reported that the internal use of the radon springs of Japan, such as Misasa, Ikeda and Masutomi thermal waters promoted the action of insuline and inhibited the experimental hyperglycemia in rabbits, and he suggested that these radioactive waters also would be able to utilize for the diabetic treatment. On the other hand, trace elements such as Cu, Zn and Mn have protective effects against disturbed carbohydrate metabolism of diabetic body. Some thermal waters contain these trace elements in various degrees, and Oshima & Ashizawa observed that after the drinking of Fujino mineral water the iron, copper, nickel and cobalt content in blood rose temporarily. In this report, the author investigated the influence of the drinking of Asozu (weak common salt spring), Hamamura (sulphated bitter spring), Kaike (calcium chloride containing saline spring) and Fujino (acid alum vitriol spring) Spring waters upon the alimentary hyperglycemia in rabbits. Thirty ml. of 10% glucose solution in thermal water (Fujino Water was diluted twice with plain water) or in plain water per kg. of bodyweight was administered to the rabbit by stomach tube and blood sugar level was determined before, 1/2, 1, 2, 3 and 4 hours after the administration. The results were as follows: 1. The drinking of Asozu Spring water inhibited the alimentary hyperglycemia compared with the plain water as a control. 2. Hamamura Spring had a tendency to decrease the blood sugar level. 3. Kaike Spring water had no inhibitory a.ction upon the alimentary hyperglycemia. 4. In spite of the existence of trace elements, Fujino mineral water had no significant effect. The author supposed that this was due to its high acidity.

Author Hasegawa, Yasumasa|
Abstract Nach oraler Anwendung vom kochsalzhaitigen schwach radioaktiven Thermalwasser von MISASA 500 ccm bei 20 schwangeren Frauen (meistens S. S. IIM. bis S. S. IVM.) wurden die folgneden Untersuchungen über Leberfunktionen angestellt und mit dem Resultat nach oralen Anwendung von Süsswasser verglichen. 1) Das Thermalwasser steigerte die Zusammensetzungsfähigkeit von Hippursäure d. h· Entgiftungsfähigkeit von Leber. 2) Nach Asorbin S Methode erwies sich keine Veränderung. 3) Die Aussheidungsfähigkeit von Bromsulfalein wurde schwach. 4) 4 stundige Harnmenge nach den oralen Anwendung war weniger bei dem Thermalwasser als bei Süsswasser, und NaCl Menge in beiden Harn war gleich. In Rücksicht auf oben genannten Untersuchungen, trotz des speziellen Einflusses auf die Leberfunktion, wegen antidiuretischer Wirkung darf orale Anwendung des Thermalwassers von MISASA bei schwangeren Frau nur mit einer gewissen Vorsicht gemacht werden.

Title Alternative EFFECT OF WATER LEVEL OF RIVER ON MINERAL SPRING
FullText URL pitsr_014_015_021.pdf
Author Umemoto, Shunji|
Abstract From June 1953 to January 1954, the water temperature and amount of flow of a spring called IITanaka-no-Yu", Misasa Hot Springs, Tottori Prefecture, were observed continuously. It issues 10 metres north of the riverside of the River Misasa and a stream runs 3 metres south of it. The water level of the River and the stream were also observed. The water level of the stream have close connection with the water volume of rice-field which surround that spring, because it is a watercourse of irrigation to rice-field. It was found that when the amount of flow increased, the water temperature rose, namely there was a positive correlation between them, and the correlation coefficient was 0.952 (highly significant). The analysis of variance showed that the amount of flow would be affected by the water level of the River but would not be severely affected by that of the stream. The correlation between the amount of flow and the water level of the River was also positive and the correlation coefficient was 0.731 (highly significant). As a result of the analysis of variance, the computation of confidence limit and the analysis of covariance, in summer the averages of the amount of flow and the water temperature would be higher than those in autumn and winter. This difference was seemed to be induced by the water level of the stream. The end of the observation, a dam had been constructed 20 metres down (west) the River and she rised, but the effect of it must be observed after this.

Abstract Konsche Siberreaktion (Kon : Silberreaktion der Zellen - Gustav Fischer) ist eine histochemische methode für den Nachweis der Reduktionskraft der Zellen, die von Professor Kon erfunden wurde und im Zusammenhang mit Vitalität der Zellen besonders der endokrinen Organe steht. Also bedeutet die starke Offenbarung dieser Reaktion die gesteigerte Funktion der Gewebe. Um zu forschen ob die geschlechtsfunktion durch Thermalbad beeinflusst wurde, wurde diese Reaktion auf die Hypophysenvorderlappen, Ovarium und Nebenniere der Ratte nach Thermalbad (schwach radioaktive Therme und H2S Therme, 42°C, 5 Minuten lang) angewandt. Sofort nach einmaligem Bad handelte es sich kein Unterschied zwischen Badgruppe und Komtrollgruppe. Nach eimal täglich 50 tägigen Btidern verstaerkte sich die Reaktion von Hypophysenvorderlappen und Corpus luteum von Ovarium (besonders bei H(2)S Therme) aber in anderer Gewebe befand keine Veraenderung sich. Also ist es klar, dass Funktion von Hypophysenvorderlappen und Ovarium nach wiederholten Thermalbaedern sich steigert.
