Antipyrin and Thallin as Hæmostatics.  Dr. Moncorvo summarizes his views regarding the hæmostatic action of antipyrin and thallin as follows:

  1. Antipyrin and thallin should be considered as hæmostatics whose efficacy surpasses that of their cogeners in so far as relates to their direct action upon the hæmorrhagic focus.

  2. This hæmostatic property has been proved by experimentation upon animals and by clinical experience.

  3. Acetanelid and phenacetin do not appear to possess much hæmostatic power.

  4. The hæmostasis produced by antipyrin and thallin seems to be explained by the constriction which they produce in the vessels as well as by the coagulation of the blood which is hastened by their action.

  5. This interpretation, however, is at present only a hypothesis which needs additional support from experimentation.—Jour. de Méd. de Paris.
