Excerpt from Annual Reports of the Chemical Laboratory of the American Medical Association, Vol. 7: January December, 1914
In the. Present volume considerable space is devoted to the analysis of patent medicines, particularly the now widely exploited obesity cures, including ... Louisenbad Reduction Salt, Get Slim, Every Woman's Flesh Reducer. It is hoped that through these reports the public may become better informed as to'the worthlessness of this class of quack nostrums. The analysis showing Pyoatoxin, referred to as pheno-methylene-formate, to be a mixture of hexamethylenamin and methylene blue is a reminder that simple mixtures masquerading as definite chemical compounds, though less common than formerly, are still to be met with. The need for the work of this Laboratory is further demonstrated. By the reports on the composition of tri-iodides, Three Chlorides and Maizo - Lithium, showing that these products, which are widely advertised in medical and pharmaceutical publications and sold in every state of the Union, are marketed under misleading and false claims as to composition. The fact that the owners of Iodia have continued to label their product falsely in spite'of the report by A. B. Lyon nearly thirty years ago indicates the need for greater publicity for find ings of this sort, for a proper publicity of these find ings Would have forced the promoters to declare the composition of their product correctly, even if this publicity had failed to attract the attention of drug commissioners. Finally, the examination of Podolax and the contribution The Detection of emodin-bear ing Drugs in Presence of Phenolphthalein will, it is hoped, be of aid to those engaged in the analysis of the phenolphthalein-bearing laxatives which are now so common.
