Following the development of a method to isolate and purify the axial filament of leptospires (Isaacs & Faine, unpub...

In Africa the year was marked by the continuation of the epidemic in Ghana and by the end of the epidemic in Gambia. In South America the danger that yellow fever may reappear in its urban form is becoming more and more worrying. A recapitulation of yellow fever cases from 1965 to 1979 shows that little progress has been made in 15 years to reduce the risk of contracting this disease.
