Not illustrated. 1909 edition. Excerpt: ... inconsistency of man, and points out that the proportion of the alkaloids in the two drugs is widely divergent.--Drug Topics, 1905, v. 20, p. 214. Dohme, A. R. L., believes that ipecac is used principally for emetic purposes, and that therefore the Carthagena root is preferable to the Rio in every way.--Apothecary, Boston, 1905, v. 17, p. 942. Moore, Russell VV., in discussing the quality of drugs coming into the port of New York, points out that while formerly Carthagena ipecac was excluded as spurious, it is now admitted, provided it contains 1.8 per cent of alkaloids.
