The Journal does not hold itself responsible for statements made by contributors or for loss or damage of mailed manuscripts. They should be ac-
companied by an undertaking that they are submitted to this Journal on-
ly. Papers must be submitted in English. Papers are accepted on the understanding that they may be subject to editorial revision.

Total text word count does not include title page, figure legends, references, or tables. Only under exceptional circumstances will Original Articles longer than 5500 words be considered, and under no circumstances will abstracts greater than 250 words be published. Editorials and Reviews are
normally invited contributions but suitable papers may be submitted to the Editor for consideration for this purpose. The presentation of Case Reports should be as short as possible. Letters to the Editor should not exceed 600 words of text, one figure or table and up to six references. Be-

ures should be numbered in accordance with the sequence established by the first identification in the text. The list of references should be typed in numerical order and indicate: authors’ names (all authors when six or less; when seven or more list only the first three and add “et al.”); article title, name of the Journal (abbreviated as in Index Medicus), publication year, volume and first and last page numbers.
