GENERAL

General

Saponin. (A glucoside obtained from Saponaria officinalis, Gypsophila, Struthium, Senega Senega, Quillaja, &c.) C32H54O18. Trituration. Solution. (Watery solutions speedily decompose.)

Saponin. has had a somewhat extensive proving (in potencies ranging from 1x to 30th), conducted by A. J. Hills. One prover, who took the 30th, for many years a sufferer from articular rheumatism, had none of his usual pains during the proving, and a great enlargement of the left knee was entirely removed. Two female provers had marked disturbance of the menstrual functions, especially pain and sufferings before the flow. A miliary eruption, and colic and leucorrhoea before the menses, pain better but not removed when the flow was established. Severe sore throat, agg. right side, was experienced by several provers, and Hills had so much swelling of the tonsils that he was obliged to abandon the proving. Nausea and vomiting, colic and diarrhoea, were among the symptoms, and a particular one was "nausea more in oesophagus and throat, agg. in a warm room." This agg. by warmth was met with in relation to many symptoms, and is probably a keynote. At the same time there was much chilliness, and lowered temperature is a characteristic feature. One of the provers who took the 12th had had his temperature reduced to 96° on the second day. Allen (Appendix) records an experiment which bears on this 0.1 gramme of Saponin. was injected into the left thigh of a man. The immediate effect was to produce intense local inflammation resembling erysipelas, but much more painful.

the pain extended to knee and hip, and the glands of the groin swelled. For the first three hours there was rapid increase of temperature, which fell to normal in twenty-four hours. The next two days there was a little fever, evidently kept up by the local irritation, but by the fifth day the temperature had fallen to 93° and the pulse to 65. (The intense local irritation bears on the skin symptoms of the proving, large numbers of boils being produced.) The other symptoms of this experiment were marked bodily and mental depression.

and exophthalmos and strabismus of the left eye (the side injected). Among the Peculiar Symptoms of Sap. are Involuntary emission of urine when walking. Roughness of mucous membrane of mouth, with raised papillae on palate and tongue. Strawberry tongue. The symptoms were markedly agg. by moving.

even motion of the eyes agg. mental labour. agg. By warmth. amel. By cold.

by cold bathing. while sitting. agg. Swallowing. Desire to vomit and defecate, agg. when quiet. amel. By stool.

by onset of menses.

On returning home one cold night from place of amusement nausea in oesophagus and throat as soon as she got comfortably warm.

as nausea increased cold feeling began at tips of fingers and toes and slowly spread to abdomen, where they met, giving an electric-like shock.

then followed griping pain and diarrhoea and vomiting.

Temperature rose steadily for three hours (after subcutaneous injection of 0.1 grm. into inner l. thigh), then gradually fell to normal, which it reached in twenty-four hours.

for the next two days there was some fever, but on the fifth day the temperature was far below the normal, reaching the collapse point of 930.

the pulse, which was somewhat elevated at first, fell to 65 on the fifth day.

Clinical
