TitleConcluding observations and summary of recommendations on Mediterranean Fever
DescriptionPrepared by the Tropical Diseases Committee. Describes the current position with respect to the Fever -- its source having been traced to goat's milk, and the disease 'soon stamped out among soldiers and sailors', the island has suffered financially from the halting of fresh milk trade. Suggests that further investigations be carried out to find if animals such as cows and sheep can carry the disease, and if susceptible animals can be immunized. Notes that Malta alone should not bear the cost of the investigation, as 'any investigation into its origin and the means of eradicating it is of world-wide importance'. p45.
