of questionable effectiveness sold under a variety of names and labels. The term "patent medicine" is somewhat of a misnomer because, in most cases, although many of the products were trademarked , they were never patented (most avoided the patent process so as not to reveal products' often hazardous and questionable ingredients). Perhaps the only "patent medicine" ever to be patented was Castoria . In ancient times, such medicine was called nostrum remedium ("our remedy" in Latin ). The name patent medicine has become particularly associated with the sale of drug compounds in the nineteenth ...
Patent medicine
The phrase "patent medicine" comes from the late 17th century marketing of medical elixirs, when those who found favour with royalty were issued letters patent authorising the use of the royal endorsement in advertising. The name stuck well after the American Revolution made these endorsements by the crowned heads of Europe obsolete. Few if any of the nostrums were actually patented; chemical patents did not come into use in the United States until 1925. In any case, attempting to monopolize a drug, medical device or medical procedure was considered unethical by standards upheld even during the era of patent medicine. ... market research, surveys and trends
425,000,000 bottles sold, the website says. It’s today called a “mouthwash,” with ads which tout its strength, and if memory serves, yea, these decades since I’ve smelled that blast of boozy-mint alcohol aroma, strong it is. During the Civil War, Dr. Tichenor received a serious wound to his leg, and with the hardships and dearth of proper medicines, the only course was to amputate. He refused the treatment, left the field hospital and somehow found the ingredients to brew up his own “Antiseptic” which, in application to the injury, killed off the gangrene and totally healed the leg. He began ... market research, surveys and trends

The untold story of medicine
For hundreds of years the medical profession believed your health was based on maintaining a balance of the "four humours." If you got sick, your doctor would engage in a process to balance your humours. You would be required to drink concoctions that made you vomit and increase your bowel and bladder activity. Your doctor would apply hot burning plasters to your body, feet or head to make you perspire and they would also bleed you by lancing a vein to ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

PETERS: Mad At Finishing Fourth In Nashville 200
Timothy Peters had been looking forward to his return to Nashville Superspeedway since the spring race in April. With some unfinished business to take care of, Peters was determined to play the guitar in Victory Lane. The #17 Red Horse Racing team unloaded Peters' favorite chassis and it looked to be the truck to beat after both practice sessions. Peters qualified third but wasted no time getting to the lead. By lap three, the No. 17 was at the front of the field. Leading until a green flag pit stop on lap 60, Peters reported that his truck was getting a little too loose. Unwilling to give up, he fought the loose condition ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Question: For David Sarokin: Quack Remedies
Hi David Could you please write a few words on Quack Remedies and 'Munyon's Homoeopathic Medicines' in particular, including the origins of the Quacks in the US; their exposure and the eventual controls. You will recall that Dr Crippen worked for Munyon's for a period and I am interested in the pre-1910 period (Crippen's era) in particular. However, there is no need to focus on Crippen specifically unless you turn up a real Lulu. Reportedly, all Munyon's remedies that were sold in the UK were prepared and packed in the US.
