Allergies, especially respiratory allergies, are one of the indications for which homeopathic treatment is most frequently sought. The progress of 147 cases of respiratory allergy since in private homeopathic practice is reported here. Only two cases of ear, nose and throat (ENT) allergies out of a total of 105 showed no improvement, no patients deteriorated. Two cases with worsening and three without improvement were noted out of 42 cases of pulmonary allergies. The constitutional homeopathic remedies varied, Lycopodium, Pulsatilla and Sulphur were most frequently prescribed for ENT allergies, there was no predominantly prescribed remedy in the pulmonary allergy group. Thirty one cases of respiratory allergies consulted only once. The reasons for such a state have been reviewed. If all these cases were therapeutic failures, the success rate of the homeopathic treatment is 87.6%.

    ABSTRACT: Veridian created a prototype of a foreign language audio information management system that integrates speech recognition technology, machine translation and advanced information retrieval and extraction for Mandarin Chinese. The system automatically processes audio recordings to create a data warehouse of derived information using speech recognition and machine translation technology components. The data warehouse can then be further exploited using information retrieval technology components. The prototype system provides the following capabilities: Automatically transforming foreign audio files into electronic text; Transforming foreign text into English text; Matching transcribed and translated text and the topics of interest to the analyst; Displaying transcribed text by speaker. The conclusions imply that while automatic speech processing technology is far from perfect for mass market distribution, it is sufficiently advanced to help with the overload of audio and video data.
