Página 303 - There can be no reason, then, for doubting that, among insects, contagious and infectious diseases of great malignity are caused by minute organisms which are produced from pre-existing germs, or by homogenesis ; and there is no reason, that I know of, for believing that what happens in insects may not take place in the highest animals. Indeed, there is already strong evidence that some diseases of an extremely malignant and fatal character, to which man is subject, are as much the work of minute...
Página 294 - In fact, whether we examine the organic' pollution of a river at different points of its flow, or the rate of disappearance of the organic matter of sewage when the latter is. mixed with fresh water and violently agitated in contact with air, or finally, the rate at which dissolved oxygen disappears in water polluted with five per cent...
Página 303 - ... sacrifice, not only of the time and peace of mind of that eminent philosopher, but, I regret to have to add, of his health. But the sacrifice has not been in vain. It is now certain that this devastating, cholera-like Pebrine is the effect of the growth and multiplication of the Panhistophyton in the silkworm. It is contagious and infectious, because the corpuscles of the...
Página 435 - All that is necessary is, while the prepuce slightly curved up is held with the left hand, to smear over the little cup thus formed by the extremity of the prepuce with collodion by means of a small camel's hair pencil or blunt end of a penholder. Almost as fast as applied the collodion solidifies. In contracting it draws closely together the edges of the prepuce, and thus the exit for the escaping urine is closed.
Página 320 - It should have little or no odour, and the odour should not be disagreeable, for diseased meat has a sickly cadaverous smell, and sometimes a smell of physic. This is very discoverable when the meat is chopped up and drenched with warm water.
Página 325 - Speaking honestly, I cannot by the argument yet presented to me admit the alcohols through any gate that might distinguish them as apart from other chemical bodies. I -can no more accept them as foods than I can chloroform, or ether, or methylal. That they produce a temporary excitement is true, but as their general action is quickly to reduce animal heat I cannot see how they can supply animal force. I see clearly how they reduce animal power and can show a reason for using them in order to stop...
Página 378 - It completely changes the whole character and outward manifestation of the disease. Delirium, coma, and subsultus quickly vanish, and are succeeded by calmness and clearness of the intellect, by natural sleep, and complete control of all the voluntary muscles. Diarrhoea is checked, and healthy consistent evacuations are established.
Página 435 - There was no pain; no awaking; but on rising in tlie morning the prepuce was found slightly distended with urine, and the collodion was removed without difficulty. This unexpected result would lead us to infer that the action of the muscular contractile fibres of the bladder has little to do in causing the nocturnal incontinence of urine in childhood, and that the escape of the fluid is rather due to want of...
Página 303 - Pebrine, is the effect of the growth and multiplication of the Panhistophyton in the silkworm. It is contagious and infectious, because the corpuscles of the Panhistophyton pass away from the bodies of the diseased caterpillars, directly or indirectly, to the alimentary canal of healthy silkworms in their neighbourhood ; it is hereditary because the corpuscles enter into the eggs while they are being formed, and consequently are carried within them when they are laid ; and for this reason, also,...
Página 392 - I begin, then, by desiring an adult patient to take a pill composed as above three times a day, immediately after the principal meals. He is cautioned that at first there will be probably no apparent effect, and that two or even three days may pass before any medicinal evacuation of the bowels takes place, perhaps even then difficult and discomforting. But within the next forty-eight hours there will be most likely an evacuation of the bowels, once or possibly twice in the day ; but nothing approaching...
