At the time of the Burma Campaign scrub typhus was a disease for which there was no treatment, but now it and other tropical diseases can be fought with antibiotics. However, final victory ovec any disease is not merely the finding of a cure but the effective control and prevention of it, and here certain difficulties may arise; in the case of scrub typhus, for instance, getting rid of rats (which act as reservoirs for the disease) does not diminish but rather augments its incidence in man.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
