2.  Pharyngeal gonorrhoea in homosexuals. 
In a prospective survey of 106 male homosexuals, investigations included smears and cultures of material taken from the tonsillar areas. A diagnosis of gonococcal pharyngitis was made in six cases. This is the largest series so far reported from England. The prevalence of gonorrhoea nd less conventional sexual practices must prompt us to investigate gonococcal infection in sites remote from the ano-genital region.

3.  Gonorrhoea in patients with scabies. 
242 patients with scabies were examined for gonorrhoea at the Municipal Hospital of Copenhagen over a one-year period. We found asymptomatic gonorrhoea in 2% of the male patients and 12%. of the female patients. The incidence of gonorrhoea in female patients with scabies is thus higher than in other routinely examined groups of patients (Andersen and Nielsen, 1974; Gregersen, 1972; Hansen and Lange, 1973; Nielsen, 1974; Starck, Bygdeman, Eriksson, Heinerz, and Moberg, )971). Our suggestion is that all patients with scabies, male as well as female, should be examined routinely for gonorrhoea.

7.  Meningococcal salpingitis. 
In a case of acute salpingitis a cervical smear showed Gram-negative diplococci but culture showed Neisseria meningitidis, which also cultured from the throat swab. It is suggested that N. meningitidis was the cause of the salpingitis in this case.

8.  Influence of copper salts on gonococci. 
No difference in the incidence of gonorrhoea was observed at a venereal disease clinic between women using a copper-coil intrauterine device (IUD) and women using oral contraceptives. Experiments in vitro demonstrated that copper sulphate has a deleterious effect on Neisseria gonorrhoeae, but the presence of serum protects the gonococci from the toxic effect of copper ions.

9.  The goat mammary gland as a model infection site for Neisseria gonorrhoeae. 
Live and formalin-killed gonococci were instilled into the mammary glands of lactating and nonlactating goats. In lactating goats viable gonococci elicited a limited inflammatory process whereas in non-lactating goats, severe inflammation and swelling appeared and peaked on the 3rd day after instillation and persisted for about 10 days. No viable gonococci were recovered after the first day, but fluorescent antibody staining showed gonococci in the exudate from non-lactating goats up to 7 days after instillation.

11.  Two-day treatment of trichomoniasis in the female. Comparison of metronidazole and nimorazole. 
A comparison has been made of the efficiency of a 2-day course of metronidazole (Flagyl) with that of a similar course of nimorazole (Naxogin) in the treatment of trichomoniasis. Of the 105 consecutive patients treated, 72 were finally included in the study (38 on metronidazole and 34 on nimorazole). Follow-up tests indicated an overall cure rate of 84-3 per cent. in those given Flagyl and 85-3 per cent. in those given Naxogin. Consorts were treated in just over 55 per cent. of cases in both groups. An attempt has been made to classify the recurrences as either 'primary' treatment failures or re-infections. Although both drugs were effective in the majority of cases, 'primary' treatment failure appeared to be commoner in the group receiving metronidazole. It is emphasized that the total dose of metronidazole was substantially lower than that recommended by the manufacturers.

20.  Bony symptoms in secondary syphilis. 
Aching bony pains were prominent in six of 144 cases of secondary syphilis. These pains included headache, backache, aching pains in the limbs, and chest pains. The cause of some of these pains is not clear, but it is important to recognize that secondary syphilis may present with a variety of pains.

22.  The situation in Eastern Europe. 
The administrative structure for the management of patients with sexually transmitted disease is described. The association of dermatology and venerology had psychological advantages for patients attending a combined clinic, but because it was considered that the future development of venereology might suffer an Institute of Venereology has been founded in Poland. The functions of this Institute are described and the organization of undergraduate and postgraduate medical training is outlined.

24.  Education at school about sexually transmitted diseases. 
Although sex education in West German schools started officically in 1968, a survey of 700 children aged 14 to 15 years showed that they understood more about birth control than about sexually transmitted disease (STD). This contrasts with the rising incidence of gonorrhoea and falling birth rate. There is a general lack of published information of STD and it is proposed that an international body like the IUVDT should be formed to promote the spread of information.

25.  Exchange of contact information between East Germany and other countries about persons infected with VD or at risk of infection. 
26 per cent. of all contacts exchanged in both directions between East Germany and Poland in 1973, concerned people infected with STD. This high rate of efficiency obtained by the present methods of contact tracing justifies further cooperative epidemiological work in the field of STD, especially in view of the increasing industrial and economic cooperation and tourism between the two countries which is expected in the future.
