Abstract

In the Journal of the American Medical Association, July 2, 1898, an article appeared entitled ''A Note on the Treatment of Carcinoma of the Uterus," by J. H. Etheridge, A.M., M.D., Professor, etc. At the start the author states that the idea of curing cancer by means of remedial agents has never found lodgment in his mind, while the improvement in the condition of several cases of uterine cancer under the treatment described in the article seems to him worthy of record. Then follows a review of the opinions of various authors on the pathology of cancer. Next a description is given of the agent used in the treatment of the cases reported—the carbid of calcium—and the product of dissociation of carbid of calcium with water—the acetylene gas—is dwelt upon at some length, and the question of its toxicity discussed. The author then reports that in 1896 he first
