Musenna Abyssinica.—A substance known as taeniol which is claimed to be derived from the rind of the Musenna abyssinica, has been recommended as a vermifuge especially for the treatment of anchylostoma. According to Liermberger (B. K. W., 1905, p. 390), it is an efficient and non-toxic anthelmintic. The only unpleasant symptom produced was slight giddiness. It is marketed only in the form of capsules of which 10 to 15 may be taken at intervals of ten minutes. After the sixth or seventh capsule there should be allowed an interval of an hour.

The Dispensatory of the United States of America, 1918, was edited by Joseph P. Remington, Horatio C. Wood and others.
