VITAMIN E is now being manufactured in Great Britain on a commercial scale and has been put within the reach of all by the British Drug Houses, who issue it as capsules of an oily solution containing 3 mgm. dl-α-tocopherol per 5 minims. The booklet issued by this firm contains a brief survey of the chemistry, physiological function, and general clinical applications of vitamin E. It is pointed out that not only may vitamin E be effective in combating sterility in the female in cases of habitual or threatened abortion, but also that types of pregnancy toxæmia and premature separation of the placenta as well as dysmenorrhoca and vulvovaginitis may also respond favourably to administration. It may be effective in male impotence and may produce descent of ectopic testes. About three pages of the booklet are devoted to a description of work on the relationship of vitamin E and the anterior pituitary, carried out in the B.D.H. Laboratories by Barrie.
