Lyssin. (Lyssinum.) (Hydrophobinum.)Nosode
The saliva of a mad dog. A nosode.
For historical review, see Hering’s Monograph (North American Journal of Homœopathy, 1879). In August 1833, Hering proved the remedy the same year, then proved by a student from Allentown, Schmid in 1935. Behlert proved it on several persons, and Redman Coxe on himself and his family, in 1853. And so on with persons bitten by dogs with rabies, symptoms observed after bites and persons afflicted with
rabies. Lyssin for Hydrophobinum has been adopted as a name for this nosode as hydrophobia properly speaking, refers to an occasional symptom and not a characteristic of the disease itself.
