The Influence of Carlsbad Water in Uric Acid Excretion—Auto-Infection from Gastro-Intestinal Fermentation—The Section in Practice of Medicine of the New York Academy Reëlects its Chairman.
At the last meeting of the Section in Practice of Medicine of New York Academy, Dr. Schuman Le Clercq, of Carlsbad, read a paper on the Influence of Carlsbad Water on Uric Acid Excretion, in which he gave the results of a series of careful experiments on his own person. Dr. F. H. Otis added his personal experience and observation in the treatment of obesity and hepatic derangement. The Chairman, Dr. R. C. M. Page, said that individuals who had too much fat and those who had an excess of uric acid would derive benefit from the treatment; but for those suffering from Bright's disease or pulmonary trouble, or from any grave depression of vitality, it was only attended with evil.
