Title Alternative Clinical studies on electromyographic changes in rheumatoid arthritis Part I. Electromyographic changes in rheumatoid arthritis
FullText URL pitsr_039_001_012.pdf
Author Ikegami, Tadaoki|
Abstract Electromyograms were recorded on 15 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (12 cases of classical rheumatoid arthritis and 3 cases of definite rheumatoid arthritis) and 5 cases of healthy controls. The muscles selected were the biceps brachii, opponens pollicis and abductor pollieis brevis, and following results were obtained: 1) The amplitude and mean potential duration in rheumatoid arthritis were less than controls, the differences being statistically significant. 2) Electromyographic evidence of myogenic atrophy was demonstrated in the small hand muscles and proximal muscles. 3) Myogenic atrophy due to steroid therapy was considered in proximal muscles, while the small hand muscles were affected more rarely. 4) Myogenic atrophy in stage III - IV were less than those in stage I·II, but in the m. opponens pollicis there were little differences. 5) Myogenic atrophy in inactive rheumatoid arthritis were significantly less than those in active, but in the m. opponens pollicis no marked changes were observed. 6) Myogenic atrophy of the m. opponens pollicis were more than that of m. abductor pollicis brevis.

Title Alternative Study on the conbined therapy of spa and gold salt in rheumatoid arthritis Part II. An experience of granulocytopenia possibly caused by gold salt preparation
FullText URL pitsr_039_037_042.pdf
Author Ikegami, Tadaoki| Yahata, Takaaki| Kitayama, Minoru| Morinaga, Hiroshi|
Abstract A thirty seven years old woman with rheumatoid arthritis was instituted gold salt intramuscularly twice a week on the nineteenth hospital day. On the fifty fourth day, however, it was discontinued at the total dosis of 180 mg because of the skin rush. In about ten days after stopping gold injection appeared high fever with shivering and granulocytopenia was demonstrated. With immediate administration of ACTH, adrenocortical hormons etc. including blood transfusion the abnormal findings of the blood pictures returned to normal and the patient became well. Recently, gold salts are so widely used in treatment of rheumatoid arthritis as one of specific antirheumatic agents that the possible severe side effect such as granulocytopenia, if quite rare, should always be considered in the course of gold therapy.

Title Alternative The effect of radioaclive thermal bathing upon serum iron values
Author Yamamoto, Yasuhisa|
Abstract The author investigated the effect of radioactive hot spring bathing on serum iron values. The serum iron values were measured by Umemoto-Yamamoto's method using o-nitrosoresorcin monomethylether, as a colour-developing reagent. The chemical compositions of the spring water used is as following: pH : 7.04, Rn : 38-151x10(-10)curies/l, K(+) : 14.0, Na(+) : 540.2, Ca(++) : 61. 2, Mg(++) : 6.6, Fe(++) : 89.0, AI(+++) : 0.1, Cl(-) : 709.5, S0(4)(--) : 179.5, HCO(3)(-) : 226.7, H(2)SiO(3) : 89.0, HBO(2) : +, CO(2) : 29.5, totaling 1,827mg/kg. 1) Single bathing: The iron values in the serum were measured before and after 0, 1/2, 1 and 2 hours after the radioactive thermal bathing for 10 minutes in water of 41 ±2℃ in temperature. Single thermal bathing showed no significant effect on the serum iron values in healthy hnman subjects, but the serum iron concent:'ations in healthy white rabbits tended to decrease following single thermal bathing and to remain at a decreased level for 1/2 to 1 hour, and returned to normally within 2 hours from the time of the bathing (Table 1, 2 and Fig. 1, 2). 2) A series of baths: The author examined the serum iron values of patients with rheumatic disorders before and 3rd, 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th days after in the course of "a series of baths" in radioactive hot spring. Patients bathed in water of 41 ± 2℃ in temperature, for 5-10 minutes, 2 or 3 times daily. A fall in the serum iron values was seen on the 3rd to 7th days. At that time the pattern of iron absorption from intestine showed a iron dificiency anemia type. The rate of absorption of iron was rapid. At about the 14th day, the serum iron values of patients tended to increase but unbound iron-binding capacity of the serum decreased. Subsequently, the serum iron values returned to the initial levels between the 21st and 28th day (Table 3, 4, 5, and Fig. 3, 4, 5), 3) It is said that the reticulo-endothelial system plays an inportant part in iron metabolism. The author injected 5 ml of Indian ink into the aural vein of rabbits for the purpose of blocking the reticulo-endothelial system. These procedures were carried out once a day for 7 successive days. The rabbits with "a blockade of R. E. S." had no significant change in the serum iron values during a series of baths. From what has been stated in the above, it may be said that bathing in radioactive hot springs regubtes the iron metabolism of patients with anemia and brings about the acceleration of the medullary function.

Title Alternative Follow-up results of rheumatic disorders treated with hot springs
FullText URL pitsr_039_077_080.pdf
Author Matsumoto, Kinshi|
Abstract Misasa Spa, located in Tottori Prefecture, was discovered in 1164, and it has been widely used for the management of rheumatic disorders, gastrointestinal diseases and so on. In 1914, Dr. R. ISHIZU measured radon contents in Misasa spring waters to be 142.14 Mache, and then Misasa Hot Springs, alkaline common salt springs, were also known as radioactive hot springs. In July, 1958, patients with rheumatic complaints who had balneotherapy at Misasa Branch Hospital of Okayama University, from January, 1955 to March, 1958, were reexamined. A questionnaire about the effectiveness of balneotherapy was sent to 149 patients and 98 answers were received. The results were as follows: 1. Spa treatment was effective in 100% of shoulder-hand syndrome and osteo-arthrosis of the knee, in 95% of degenerative spondylosis, in 93% of rheumatoid arthritis, in 80% of low back pain, in 67% of sciatica, etc. Generally speaking, balneotherapy was effectual in 78 of 98 patients with rheumatic disorders (81.2%). 2. The effectiveness of spa treatment came out in the course of thermal cure in 74% of 78 cases, and the others recognized the effects after spa treatment was finished. 3. The effect of spa therapy on the subjective complaints was notable in the cases which had a period of spa treatment over half a month. In the cases which had a period of spa treatment within 2 weeks, it is thought that the period is too short to reveal the efficacy of hot spring bathing. 4. It appeared that drinking of hot spring water had no remarkable effect on rheumatic complaints. 5. Forty-three per cent of the cases answered that their body conditions during this inquiry time became better than that at the beginning of the balneotherapy, and the remainders of the reexamined cases were under the trcatments with cortisone, vitamine, massage, acupuncture and so forth.
