This Epitome was prepared under the direction of a committee appointed by the Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry to give physicians, in brief form, information about drugs and preparations included in the Pharmacopeia and the National Formulary. This edition differs from the preceding edition as far as the individual items are concerned; it includes only articles which are in the new eleventh revision of the Pharmacopeia and the new sixth edition of the National Formulary, together with some items, and corrections and changes found in the first supplement to the eleventh edition of the U. S. P., and the first and second correction lists for the National Formulary. While the first supplement contains complete monographs for seventy-nine preparations, all but one of which replace certain monographs in the eleventh edition of the U. S. P., only twenty-one of these monographs contain changes which affect the statements in the fifth edition
