Medical Progress in Chile

Nature volume 162, page 137 (24 July 1948) | Download Citation



THE Medical Faculty of Valparaiso, formed after a meeting of Chilean medical men convened in March 1912, by Dr. Frederico Engelbach, has, since its formation, planned the publication of an official scientific journal ; but for various reasons this has not been possible until this year. Now the first number of this vigorous Faculty‘s journal, Revista Medica de Valparaiso, has appeared. Well printed and tastefully produced, it will appear in February, May, August and November each year and will publish only scientific papers. As the Faculty‘s president, Dr. R. Gajardo Tobar, says in his editorial, its pages are dedicated to those who have studied phenomena with objective criticism and express their results with the greatest possible precision. The new journal will record the more important themes presented to the Faculty, summaries of the Faculty‘s meetings and articles by individuals invited to contribute. This first number contains articles on hypertension of nephritic origin, streptomycin and tuberculous meningitis, the therapeutic action of urethane in leukaemia, and varicose veins and their treatment. Medical men in both the Old and the New Worlds will welcome this new record of the work being done in Chile.
