    Rheumatism: Its Nature; Its Pathology And Its Successful Treatment
    (William Wood & Company, 1886-01-01) Maclagan, T.J.
    "A PERUSAL of the literature which bears on the question of the treatment of acute rheumatism (rheumatic fever) is a task from which few would rise with any definite idea as to how that disease is best treated. Purgatives, diaphoretics, sedatives, alkalies and alkaline salts, colchicum, aconite, quinine, guaiacum, lemon juice, sulphur, mercury, veratria, tincture of muriate of iron, etc., would each be found to have in turn attracted the favorable notice of one or more of those who have directed attention to the subject. Of all these different remedies not one stands out prominently, as that to which we can with confidence look for good results. We have, indeed, no remedy for acute rheumatism-a malady which not unfrequently proves fatal, which is always accompanied by great pain, and is a fruitful source of heart disease. “Under these circumstances I need make no apology for bringing under the notice of the profession a remedy which, so far as my observations have gone, has given better results than any which I have hitherto tried-and I have tried all the usual remedies over and over again. '' In the course of an investigation into the causation and pathology of acute febrile ailments, which has for some time engaged my attention, I was led to give some consideration to intermittent and to rheumatic fever. The more I studied these ailments, the more was I struck with the points of analogy which existed between them. On a detailed consideration of these I shall not now enter. Suffice it to say that they were sufficiently marked to lead me to regard rheumatic fever as being, in its pathology, more closely allied to intermittent fever than to any other disease, an opinion which further reflection and extended experience have served only to strengthen." Such are the opening sentences of the paper in which, in March, 1876, I introduced salicin to the notice of the profession, as a remedy in acute rheumatism. In this volume the miasmatic theory of rheumatism, there referred to, is expounded ; and an explanation offered of the manner in which the salicyl compounds produce the marked anti-rheumatic effects which they are now all but universally acknowledged to possess. The plates representing the early changes noted on the surface of the endocardium in cases of rheumatic endocarditis, are taken from Dr. Green's " Introduction to Pathology and Morbid Anatomy." For permission to use them I have to thank Dr. Green and his publisher.

    The Propaganda for Reform in Proprietary Medicines
    ln February, 1905, the Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry of the American Medical Association was organized to investigate the proprietary medicine question and to pass on those which should be up to the standard required of ethical proprietary medicines. From time to time report of thi Council have appeared in the columns of ' The Journal of the American Medical Association, and the Journal has also contained other matter relating to the question of nostrums and proprietary medicines not directly connected with the work of the Council. Requests have been received repeatedly for this or that number of the Journal containing an article on the subject, and as it has been impossible to furnish many of the copies asked for, it has been thought best to collect some of the matter and issue it in this reprint form. The matter is reprinted from the Journal, and following each article is given the date on which it appeared.

    Clinical Diagnosis: A Manual of Laboratory Methods
    (W.B. Saunders Company, 1913-01-01) Todd, James
    While the original purpose of this book- to present Clearly and concisely the various laboratory methods which are of use in clinical medicine- has not been lost Sight of, its scope has been somewhat enlarged in the present edition. Each section has been carefully revised and much new Material has been added to every chapter. Among the many additions may be mentioned: the use of artificial light and the importance of numerical aperture in microscopic work; photomicrography with simple apparatus; The antiformin method for tubercle bacilli; detection and significance of albumin in the sputum; Tsuchiya's modification, of Esbach's test; the formalin test for ammonia And benedict's methods for sugar in urine; volume index Of red blood-corpuscles; wright and Kinnicutt's method of counting blood-platelets; Harlow’s blood-stain; a simple Technic for the diagnosis of typhoid fever by blood cultures; The Wassermann reaction, and Frothingham's Impression method in the diagnosis of rabies. Because of the growing importance of animal parasites, this chapter has been entirely rewritten and more than Doubled in extent. Two new chapters have been added: One upon bacteriologic methods, which supplements the Methods given in other portions of the book, and one upon preparation and use of vaccines, including therapeutic and diagnostic use of tuberculin.
