Series 3: Hepatitis Study (Kyoto, Japan ), 1943-1970 [series]:

This series contains correspondence, reports, charts, and other data concerning Chalmers' Hepatitis Study in Japan. In 1951 he was the principal investigator of the hepatitis treatment research unit of Harvard Medical School in Kyoto, Japan. This study was later used by Chalmers to disprove the common belief that long periods of bed rest was beneficial to those suffering from acute infectious hepatitis. The series is arranged alphabetically by file folder.

[RESTRICTED PHI POLICY] Series is restricted according to HMD's access to health information policy. Please consult the Manuscripts Curator for access to these materials.

Series 4: Publications, 1954-1995 [series]:

This series contains copies of Chalmers' published articles in such journals as the New England Journal of Medicine, The American Journal of Medicine, The Sciences, Controlled Clinical Trials, and The Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine. In addition, there are two bibliographies of Chalmers' publications. Among the many covered titles are clinical trials; meta-analysis; clinical gastroenterology and cardiology, and geriatrics.

The series is organized into 6 sub-series covering work he authored at the Mt. Sinai Clinical Trials Unit, the Technology Assessment Group, Harvard School of Public Health, and papers submitted for publication or in press. These sub-series follow Chalmers' original order and numbering system (which is roughly chronological) as found in folder 1 of Papers, Clinical Trials Unit, Mt. Sinai, 1965-1992.
