In addition there is a further report of the same date to the Therapeutic Trials Committee on the use of suprarenal cortical extracts in Addison's disease in which he gives an overview of some of the 18 cases seen by him so far since the beginning of 1934 as part of the investigations and treated with either Eucortone (Allen & Hanburys Ltd.) or Cortin (Organon Laboratories), or both.

An account of a discussion opened by Wilkinson into the contents of the above report suggests that it may have been discussed in a meeting of the Therapeutic Trials Committee at some point. The file also contains a post mortem report of one of Wilkinson's patients. Originally numbered "9".
