This is a translation of the well-known German work and therefore retains the processes of the German Pharmacopeia, which the author suggests may be valuable for comparison with those of the U. S. Pharmacopeia. The distribution and elimination of poisons in the animal body are briefly considered, what organs should be examined, what alteration poison undergoes in metabolism, and in what form it is eliminated. Biologic methods used in detecting arsenic and human blood are also included.
