Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1902 edition. Excerpt: ...digestive action, which at first may be quite efficient, grows weaker and weaker, and fresh sup plies of pepsin are required from time to time to maintain the process. " 'PEPULE' PEPSIN AND BISMUTH (FAIRCHILD) Each contains one grain of pure Pepsin (Fairchild) and two grains of Bismuth Subnitrate.

There is no question of incompatibility between pepsin and bismuth except as relates to the ammonia citrate in solutions, a salt of bismuth, moreover, which is greatly inferior to the subnitrate. The bismuth subnitrate is well known to be very beneficial in certain forms of dyspepsia, and its properties are in no way inimical to the action of the gastric juice or to that of artificial peptic agents administered in conjunction with it.
