JSocieti} Reports. NEW YORK ACADEMY OF MEDICINE. Stated Meeting, June 4, i8q6. Joseph D. Bryant, M.D., President, in the Chair. The meeting viagra pill nz was devoted to the completion of the programme of May 21st, when Dr. C. G. Coakley read a paper, " Statistics of Diphtheria," viagra pill nz and Dr. Joseph E. Winters one, "Clinical Observations on the Anti- toxin Treatment of Diphtheria, and a Report of Per- sonal Investigation of This Treatment in the Principal Fever Hospitals of Europe during the Summer of i8o.5"(see page 877). Personal Experiences with the Antitoxin Treat- ment. The discussion was opened by a paper by 1 >k. P. H. Ernst with this title (see page 907). Diphtheria with and without Antitoxin Dr. \Y. L. Stowell read a paper on this subject isee page 903). How the Facts about the Antitoxin Treatment Should be Estimated. Dr. W. H. Thomson opened the general discussion with viagra pill nz a paper bearing this title (see page 893). Dr. Georc.e L. Peabody said the criticisms which he had thought of making upon Dr. Winters' paper had already been stated by Dr. Thomson. It certainly was not fair to claim that a remedy was no remedy at all because the reduction in mortality produced by viagra pill nz it was not uniform in all parts of the world. Some doc- tors did allow antitoxin to be used upon themselves; he himself received a large dose last winter, and with no unpleasant effects except a local urticaria, viagra online comments which soon passed off. If deaths had occurred he believed the cause must have been some extraneous substance. As with other remedies, some persons were more susceptible to its benefits and exceptional effects than others. Dr. Peabody had given antitoxin and had seen it given frequently, and thought one who had seen the diphtheritic child come out of a semi- comatose state under its influence and within forty- eight hours sit up in bed and play with toys must have been impressed with its remedial power. Dr. Peabody said he was awaiting further testimony. Dr. Andrew H. Smith sent a communication, which was read by the secretary, containing statistics received from Washington regarding diphtheria throughout the country and in Washington before and since the introduction of the antitoxin treamtent. It was remarkable how the reduction in mortality had gone hand in hand with the administration of anti- toxin. Where a considerable quantity had been used the death rate had been low; where but little or none was used the death rate had been about the same as in former years. The figures from boards of health in various cities gave 5,125 cases treated with viagra pill nz antitoxin, with a death rate of ten per cent. ; without antitoxin in the same places 2,936 viagra pill nz cases, with a death rate of 41 per cent. Of 2,400 children who were given immu- nizing doses, 19 developed mild diphtheria within two days after the treatment. No other effects were noted. In Washington the mortality had been reduced more than one-half. The secretary also read limited statis- tics received from Chicago. Dr. Smith said in his communication that personally he was in favor of an- titoxin. A Critical Analysis of Dr. Winters' Clinical Ob- servations on the Antitoxin Treatment of Diph- theria, was the subject of the remarks made by Dr. John Winters Brannan (see page 897J. Dr. viagra online comments H. W. Berg thought that if there was more broncho-pneumonia since the introduction of viagra pill nz the anti- toxin treatment the explanation lay in the fact that more patients lived a sufficient number of days to de- velop that complication. Dr. Winters had spent much viagra online comments time and viagra pill nz money to make out a case against antitoxin, yet, after all the evidence had been summarized, Dr. Berg felt that there was not much to it. In the first place, it was all based on hospital cases, which were well known to be the least favorable for antitoxin treatment. " A judgment based on hospital statistics was necessarily and absolutely fallacious." Yet, as Dr. Brannan had said, they' had had fair results at viagra online comments Willard Parker's compared with the pre-antitoxin pe- riod. In private practice he had found antitoxin the most marvellous remedy for diphtheria which he had ever used. Dr. August Caille said he had come prepared to prove that Dr. Winters' communication had no scien- tific value whatever, but some of the other speakers had already done that. viagra pill nz Dr. Winters had not given the latest figures; these had been given to-night, and went to show that even viagra online comments in hospitals the reduction in mortal- ity had been very great. Dr. Caille; had recently re- turned from the meeting of the American Pa;diatric Society at Montreal, and had some of the figures of a collective investigation as to the use of antitoxin in private practice, by which it appeared that the mortal- ity from diphtheria when treated early with antitoxin was less than five per cent. Dr. Caille's own experi- ence had been very favorable indeed, and the cases which had been most convincing were those of diph- theritic croup. His former mortalty in this class of cases had been seventy per cent., whereas under anti- toxin he had had ten croup cases recover in succes- sion, an experience which he had never had before. Dr. Joseph O'Dwyer had written him of like viagra pill nz favor- able results, and said that where he used to put the tube in he now took it out. Dr. Caille thought viagra online comments we should not take this whole matter very seriously. It seemed that opposition was, one of the accompanying features in the evolution of scientific medicine. It existed with regard to vaccina- tion even to-day, as well as on the day of its birth. Dr. Ernst, of Boston, said that he and his col- leagues in Boston had been extremely interested to know on what grounds the attacks on antitoxin were
