This book seems to contain a great deal of valuable information and might well be called a pocket dispensatory.

The chapter on organotherapy takes up preparations of the duodenal mucous membrane, and of the suprarenal and thyroid glands, and the method of treatment by the inspissated milk and blood of thyroidectomized animals.
