Characteristics.
      This is one principal nosodes of cancer, and is one of Dr. Burnett’s preparations.
      I use it more frequently than any other as a diathesic remedy.
      Burnett had a number of different cancer preparations, and followed his instinct largely in their use and selection.
      In addition to Scirrhinum, of which I have given an account in the Dictionary, he had a preparation which he named Durum (a Latinised form of Scirrhinum, as I take it).
      This he used in treating depraved inherited conditions in children, such as infantile self-abuse, with good effects, which I have confirmed.
      I have met with a suicidal tendency in several cancer patients, so that the cancer nosodes may be appropriate in many mental cases, especially where the heredity points that way.
