Provings by Swan, Ren Dell, C. H. Allen, Finch, Norton, Frost, Farrington, Cleveland, Laura Morgan, Berridge, Wilder, Higgins, Ostrom, Nichols, Peace, Sawyer, Carr. Bigler. Macdonald, in Great Britain, and Noegerath and Lydston, in American, have published fatal cases, and the effects of the poison. The symptoms produced by the virus in acute cases have been included in the pathogenesis, just as the toxic symptoms of Arsenicum Album Arsenic, Merc Viv Mercurius, Opium and Plumbum Metallicum Plumbum are included in the pathogenesis.

If the symptoms of the patient call for Medorrhinum it should be prescribed with the same confidence as any other in the Materia Medica, entirely irrespective of the sycotic history in the case. Like every other nosode, it should be prescribed according to its strict indications, just as we prescribe Arsenicum Album Arsenic, Opium or Sulphur Sulphur, irrespective of its origin or the diagnosis.
