Apis. (Apis Mellifica.)

Poison of the Honey Bee. Apium Virus.

Among all our drugs this is the one of which we have the most different preparations. There is but one right kind. It is the pure poison, which is obtained by grasping the bee with a small forceps, and catching the minute drop of virus suspended from the point of the sting, in a vial or watch crystal. After collecting a sufficient quantity it may be potentized in alcohol, distilled water, or prepared in oil or pure glycerine, for external use.

It is absurd to dispute the solubility of the poison in alcohol, and foolish to take the whole bee with all the foreign matter and impurities, which color the tincture.

In 1835 a clergyman in Thuringia, the Rev. Brauns, the publisher of the first popular homeopathic paper, mentioned cures he had made with the pure poison of the honey bee, which he called Apisin.

The same year he commenced a work, an attempt at treating homeopathically domestic animals: Part I, horses, 1835; Part II, cattle, 1836; and Part III, sheep, 1843. A second edition of Part I was printed in 1837. He reported numerous cures with Apis, particularly of most obstinate diseases of horses.

The great problem to be solved with regard to the snake poison (and of course also the nosodes) was: can we use the symptoms from inoculation, as well as the symptoms obtained by proving the alcoholic tinctures. It was thought that the proving of the bee-poison would solve the problem.

In 1850 dried and powdered bees were introduced by E. E. Marcy, in his Theory and Practice. In January, 1852, we received a pamphlet containing real provings, by the New York Central Hom. Society, reprinted in the N. A. Quarterly, same year, p. 184-203, and Aug. 10, 1852.

This was translated into German, and numerous provings with the pure poison added; also all notices of effects of the sting that could be found, these being considered most important. The whole was printed in the form of a monography, in the Amerikanische Arzneiprüfungen (American Provings), Vol. I, p. 171.422, and forms the most complete collection of the effects of any animal poison in medical literature.

In 1858, Dr. C. W. Wolf published a book on bee-poison, declaring it a polychrest, but he also used the tincture from the whole bee. It happened at the time to correspond to the genius epidemicus in Berlin, but Wolf recommended it in all intermittent fevers. His little book was translated in the same year and printed in New York; the author, however, was not allowed to add his notes, or he would have given the first provers in this country credit for what they had done.

The greater number of confirmed symptoms were observed from the pure virus.
