Since presenting this paper, we have observed that improvement in all categories
is enhanced when the intravenous injection contains 800 mg. to 1000 mg. thiamin
hydrochloride, 200 mg. pyridoxine, 400 mg. niacinamide, 100 mg. nicotinic acid.
The thiamin hydrochloride solution must be clear. The amount of niacin employed
must be calculated from the "flush factor" of a given patient.
The injection is made with a 20cc or 30cc syringe, using a 23G x 3/4 inch or
22G x 1 inch needle. Intravenous medication can be given daily; it should be
administered at least twice weekly. Due to sensitivity possibilities, we always
have the patient take the intramuscular injections for three weeks before starting

R. Klenner, BS, MS, MD
Reidsville, North Carolina
A native of Pennsylvania, Dr. Klenner attended St. Vincent and St. Francis
Colleges, where he received his BS and MS degrees in Biology. He graduated
magna cum laude and was awarded a teaching fellowship there. He was also awarded
the college medal for scholastic philosophy. There followed another teaching
fellowship in Chemistry at Catholic University, where he pursued studies for
a doctorate in Physiology.
Dr. Klenner then migrated to North Carolina and Duke University to continue
his studies. He arrived in time to use his knowledge in Physiology and Chemistry
to free the nervous system of the frog for a symposium, by immersing the animal
in 10% nitric acid. Taken in tow by Dr. Pearse, chairman of the department,
he was finally persuaded to enter the school of medicine. He completed his
studies at Duke University and received his medical degree in 1936.
Dr. Klenner served three years in post-graduate hospital training before embarking
on a private practice. Although specializing in diseases of the chest, he continued
to do General Practice because of the opportunities it afforded for observations
in medicine. His patients were as enthusiastic as he in playing "guinea
pigs" to study the action of ascorbic acid. The first massive doses of
ascorbic acid he gave to himself. Each time something new appeared on the horizon,
he took the same amount of ascorbic acid to study its effects so as to come
up with the answers.
Dr. Klenner's list of honours and professional affiliations is tremendous.
He is listed in various "Who's Who" registers, and has published
many scientific papers throughout his career. Dr. Klenner is a Fellow: The
American College of Chest Physicians; Fellow & Diplomate: The International
College of Applied Nutrition; Fellow: The American Association for the Advancement
of Science; Fellow: The American College of Angiology; Fellow: The American
Academy of Family Practice; Fellow: The Royal Society of Health (London); Fellow
(Honorary): The International Academy of Preventive and Orthomolecular Medicine;
Fellow: International College of Angiology; and Founder-Fellow: American Geriatrics
