  • Collection
  • 1990-2002

University of Texas-Houston Health Science Center Internal Medicine Grand Rounds videos consists of videos of Grand Rounds and the Clinicopathologic Conference (CPC) from the Department of Internal Medicine in the University of Texas Medical School at Houston.

The department provides for the education of students, physicians, and the public in the field of biomedical knowledge. The department provides clinical education, fosters research, and through its clinical services provides patient care ranging from primary to subspeciality care. The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston was created by the UT System Board of Regents and supported by the Texas Legislature in 1972. Located in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas, the school is primarily a graduate education university focusing on the health sciences. The Department of Internal Medicine offers clinical education programs in the following areas: cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, general internal medicine, hematology, infectious diseases, medical genetics, oncology, pulmonary and critical care medicine,renal diseases and hypertension, rheumatology and clinical immunogenetics.

Traditionally, Grand Rounds consist of presenting the medical problems and treatment of a particular patient to an audience consisting of doctors, residents, and medical students. The Grand Rounds in this collection are like a lecture series with a range of medical-related topics from the history of medicine to current treatments and knowledge about specific diseases.

Also included in this collection are tapes of the Clinicopathologic Conference (CPC) series. CPC is the well established abbreviation for Clinicopathological Conference. However, it also can stand for the process of clinicopathological correlation. The CPC conference is a time-honored interdepartmental and interdisciplinary approach in which a patient’s clinical findings and course are presented, followed by a discussion usually focused on the differential diagnosis by a knowledgeable clinician, followed by the presentation of the pathological findings by a pathologist, culminating in a general discussion. The goal is to provide increased understanding of diseases by correlation of clinical and pathological findings.

These videos are in good condition. The collection covers the years 1990-2002. This is a box level inventory. Only a date range is given for the videos. There is no other descriptive information. The videos are in VHS format. There are 6.5 cubic feet (13 boxes).

Conversations with the Past: "History of Malaria" by Richard Conklin, MD

This 3/4” U-Matic tape contains a lecture titled "History of Malaria" by Richard Conklin, MD, Assistant Professor of Pathology & Lab Medicine at University of Texas Medical School. The lecture took place May 21, 1980, and it was a part of the series “Conversations with the Past.” The recording runs 46:02, with about 44 minutes of lecture content. According to the credits, it was a Medical Community Television System Production. The recording is a duplication, in color, with stereo sound.
(0:01) The recording begins with color bars and black screen.
(0:33) Title card
(0:55) Dr. Conklin introduces his talk, noting the long history of malaria, as well as rising concern among Europeans when they began colonizing the tropics.
(3:10) He notes the Greeks understood the association with marshes, described the clinical syndromes, and attempted control measures.
(3:48) New developments beginning in the 16th century: therapy, discovery of the parasite, the mosquito’s role, and control.
(4:40) Therapy. Cinchona bark.
(8:20) Jesuit Juan Lopez, first recorded person to bring cinchona bark to Europe. Cardinal Juan de Lugo received it, eventually using it and becoming an advocate for it.
(10:30) In England, [Oliver] Cromwell opposed it. Later Dr. [Thomas] Sydenham did trials on it, finding it worked on intermittent fevers. In Italy, Dr. [Francesco] Torti separated continuous and intermittent fevers in his testing.
(11:36) Astronomer Dr. [Charles Marie] de la Condamine described the trees and sent results to [Carl] Linnaeus, who cataloged it.
(12:28) [Charles] Ledger, born 1818 in London, introduced alpacas from Peru to Australia.
(17:38) Ledger sent his assistant Manuel to gather cinchona seeds. The British acquired their own cinchona seeds. The Dutch purchased Ledger’s seeds and planted them in the Dutch East Indies (Java). Ledger’s seeds outperformed the British ones.
(21:18) At the outbreak of World War II, Java produced all the world’s quinine. An expedition to the Philippines gathered seeds and gave them to Merck Company, which planted them in Guatemala. After the war, synthetic options were available, and the plantations in Guatemala were abandoned. But they were restored, and new ones were planted once resistant strains emerged.
(23:28) Parasite. Charles Alphonse Laveran, born in Paris, the first person to see a malaria parasite. He went to Algeria in 1878, began to study malaria patients, and made observations. In 1907 he received the Nobel Prize. [Camillo] Golgi distinguished three different parasites.
(28:34) Vector: the mosquito. An American, Dr. Albert Freeman Africanus King outlined this possibility. British and Russian researchers also looked at vectors.
(30:15) Patrick Manson, founder of the London School of Tropical Medicine. He was the first to report the mosquito as vector for a human parasite, including for malaria. However, he thought the mosquito got the parasite from water, not from another human. [Robert] Koch was first to suggest human-to-mosquito-to-human transmission.
(32:56) Theobald Smith, from Albany, New York, studied cattle disease caused by ticks. He proved an insect could transmit to disease to humans. David Bruce also showed transmission of disease among cattle by the tsetse fly.
(34:25) Ronald Ross, a student of Manson’s, studied the mosquito-malaria hypothesis in India and established the linkage. Others confirmed his work. Dr. Manson and Dr. [Giovanni Battista] Grassi tested this on human subjects.
(37:26) News travelled to America. Walter Reid learned about it and started exploring control.
(38:20) Control. Walter Reed and [Dr. William C.] Gorgas went to Cuba to work on control for yellow fever and malaria. Gorgas then worked on control for the building of the Panama Canal.
(40:38) New phase of control begins when a new mosquito was introduced to Brazil. Rockefeller Foundation supported control efforts across large areas.
(42:42) World War II. Synthetic insecticides. WHO set out to eradicate malaria worldwide. But these efforts also resulted in pollution and resistance in some mosquitos.
(44:16) Next phase: biological controls.

He describes their initial excitement, a “latent period,” where others did not show much interest, and a time about 10 years ago when the idea gained traction. He says clinicians and epidemiologists noticed that what they'd been studying in animals could have application to people. He notes there are now 20-25 research centers actively pursuing the two-step mechanism.
(11:45) Shubik notes how the slow-running experiments offered him time to do research and chemistry, as well as to get his license to work with animals. Berenblum had done work on environmental carcinogens. He reflects on their small but fairly comprehensive program in carcinogenesis.
(14:50) Berenblum discusses his move to start a new department at the Weizmann Institute in Israel in 1950. They had suggested a department of cancer research, whereas he proposed a department of experimental biology. He notes a colleague did the same for biochemistry.
(17:50) Berenblum speaks to the development of academic excellence at that Institute and within Israel generally.
(20:24) Shubik discusses his move from Oxford to Nebraska, including at stop at Northwestern University. He then had the opportunity to build a new department at the new Chicago Medical School, which allowed him to run some experiments he was interested in. He discusses experiments.
