PREFACE 



A conservative estimate of the annual expenditure 
in this country for remedies sold under proprietary- 
names, and usually of more or less secret composi- 
tion, is $150,000,000. The actual composition of these 
preparations, therefore, is of direct public interest. 

The federal government, the inspection officials of 
several of the states, and in particular The Journal 
of the American Medical Association, have rendered 
a valuable service to the public by analyzing many of 
these remedies and spreading the results of such analy- 
ses on their public records. Unfortunately, however, 
these valuable records for various reasons are not 
easily accessible to the general public, and their useful- 
ness accordingly has been curtailed. The purpose of 
the present volume is to remedy this difficulty in a 
measure by compiling an accurate record of published 
analyses heretofore scattered through the pages of 
many volumes of some fifty publications. There are 
about 40,000 of these remedies advertised and sold in 
this country, exclusive of those of purely local con- 
sumption, and the present compilation makes no claims 
for completeness, as only about 2,800 brands are 
included in its pages. These, it is believed, however, 
represent the most widely used, certainly the most 
extensively advertised, proprietary medicines offered 
to the American public today. 

In addition to remedies of secret composition, cer- 
tain so-called "ethical" preparations (those sold 
actually or ostensibly for physician's prescriptions) 
and a number of preparations recognized in the 
National Formulary have been included in the com- 
pilation. 



[2] 

The compiler assumes no responsibility for the cor- 
rectness of any analyses recorded except those of his 
own laboratory ; he has endeavored, however, to make 
a correct and faithful transcription of the published 
analytical data, and to give a definite and accurate ref- 
erence to the publication in which each analysis may 
be found. In numerous instances where more than 
one analysis of a remedy is reported wide discrepancies 
in the different analyses will be observed. These dif- 
ferences in composition do not suggest inaccurate 
analytical methods but rather indicate actual variability 
of composition. 

The -inclusion of a remedy in the present compila- 
tion is no indication of its value or lack of value. The 
analyses are published without comment and without 
prejudice, and it is hoped that in the present compact 
form they may prove of use to physicians, pharmacists, 
inspection officials and to the general public. 

The compiler wishes to acknowledge his indebted- 
ness to Dr. Arthur J. Cramp, director of the Propa- 
ganda Department of The Journal of the American 
Medical Association, for his many valuable suggestions 
and for his generous assistance in the somewhat ardu- 
ous task of preparing the manuscript for publication.

Curry Cancer Cure 

(DR. CURRY CANCER CURE CO., LEBANON, OHIO) 

The following analyses of certain of the remedies used in this "cure" 
were made by the U. S. Government: Nos. 7, 8, 9, 10, and 18 are 
simply antiseptic substances useful only in rendering surfaces to which 
they are applied cleanly and free from outside infection. Nos. 19, 21, 
24 and 20, 22, and 23 are also antiseptic and the latter three, in addi- 
tion, contain opium, which to some extent allays pain of the part to 
which applied, in these cases, the rectal or vaginal passages. Nos. 25 
and 26 are simply tonic medicines. No. 17 is a preparation of opium 
which deadens the system to the sensibility of pain. No. 16, a cocain 
preparation which relieves pain temporarily by its local paralyzant action 
on the tissues to which it is applied. No. 15, an astringent which may 
be used in stopping the flow of blood or secretions. No. 14, a laxative 
pill of value in relieving constipation, which is quite likely to be pro- 
duced by the administration of the opium included in the list of 
medicines. Nos. 12 and 13, merely coverings for holding medicines in 



[68 ] 

place, inactive medicinally. Nos. 6 and 10 are simple ointments. No. 7, 
hydrogen peroxid, a cleansing agent. No. 5. This preparation was 
originally thought to be a mild caustic, but has since been found and is 
now believed to be a non-irritant iodin preparation and cannot be used 
to destroy any kind of tissue. No. 2. Crystallized carbolic acid; a 
dangerous and pernicious substance in the hands of the layman. It is 
a corrosive poison and while decidedly a tissue destroyer it acts destruc- 
tively both on diseased and healthy tissue and, moreover, is liable to 
produce gangrene when applied to ulcerated surfaces. No. 3. Chromic 
acid in concentrated solution is well known as a caustic and is used 
to some extent as such, but in the weak solution represented it is very 
doubtful if this result can be accomplished. No. 4. Concentrated acetic 
acid in the strength here represented is a strong escharotic and does 
destroy tissue, both diseased and healthy, and much care must be 
exercised in its use. No. 1. From the representations made at the 
hearing it appears that the company depends very largely for results 
on the preparation known as "Red Ointment." "In conclusion, this 
office is of the opinion that the nature of these remedies is such that 
they cannot possibly affect a cure except by the merest chance. They 
are absolutely worthless for internal cancer. The claims, representa- 
tions and promises employed in promoting this treatment are false and 
deceptive." — Nostr. and Quack., 1912, 49.
