Abstract : Research under the following projects is reported: DA Project 3A161101A91C In-House Laboratory Independent Research - This program is instituted as one aspect of a broad approach to provide individual Army scientists and engineers an additional opportunity to maintain and increase their competence by doing original work in areas suiting their talents, thereby promoting a vigorous internal research program of the highest technical caliber. DA Project 3A161102B71R Research in Biomedical Sciences - The objectives are to obtain information by the techniques of clinical and basic research on injuries and diseases, except communicable diseases, commonly seen in soldiers, especially in field operations and overseas. The work is divided according to the major medical specialties. Emphasis is placed on diseases and injuries which are receiving little or no study by civilian research groups, and the work is aimed at providing better preventive measures as well as treatment. DA Project 3A162110A825 Oral and Maxillofacial Sciences - The objectives are to develop simplified procedures for the care of complex maxillofacial wounds and injuries which require long time-consuming procedures for reconstruction, to achieve minimal morbidity rates from oral emergencies, preventable oral disease, and restorative failures. To develop more efficient, simplified, effective clinical and laboratory techniques which will result in better utilization of manpower and a saving in time and materiel.
