Excerpt from The American Gynaecological and Obstetrical Journal, Vol. 15: July-December, 1899
The class of cases to which I have applied this treatment has been both numerous and varied and, while the time under treatment with this remedy has not been very long in some instances, still such very satisfactory symptomatic results have been obtained in every case, to gether with decided anatomical changes in many of them, that I feel warranted in hastening to add my testimony to that of Dr. Shober in the h0pe that a more extended and careful study of this product may be instituted; but at the same time I wish to state most emphatically that in these glandular extracts I do not claim to have found the long looked-for panacea for all the frailties of feminine ﬂesh, so to speak, but only desire to call the attention of the profession to a comparatively new, and as yet unrecognized agent in the treatment of these cases. Another point I also wish to be clearly understood before citing these cases, is that I consider myself to be in a measure familiar with those utterly hopeless conditions of pus in the pelvis which can only be treated by radical operation, and that the glandular extracts are not advocated for such cases, but rather for that large and constantly increasing class now included under the broad term of salpingo - oophoritis covering a multitude of clinical and pathological inaccuracies or what might be termed unproved assertions.
