This book is a record of the consideration by the Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry of products found unacceptable for inclusion in New and Nonofficial Remedies. It is also the repository of valuable preliminary reports on the status and standardization of drugs that are not yet ready for general use by the medical profession and of timely special reports on the use or limitations of drugs that have already been recognized. The current volume of Council Reports is chiefly notable for reports of the last named category. In a report on the optimal dosage of cod liver oil, the Council puts on record the dosage arrived at as result of a questionnaire sent to leading pediatricians; in another report on the intravenous use of barbital compounds is given the Council's considered verdict on the dangers of and the very limited indications for the use of the barbitals intravenously.
