Nosode of Septicaemia (Swan). Attenuations made from contents of a septic abscess.
Clinical.-Camp diarrhoea. Dysentery. Typhoid fever.
Characteristics.-Skinner (H. W., xxxv. 246) gave a supply of Septic. 10m (F. C.) to a volunteer going to South Africa, with instructions to take a globule every four hours if attacked with anything like sinking or typhoid fever. The young man wrote home that "Septicaemin is like magic in diarrhoea and dysentery in camp life," and asked for more, as his supply was largely drawn on by his friends.
Relations.-Compare: Pyro., Malar., Bapt.
