Lyssin. (Lyssinum.) (Hydrophobinum.)

The saliva of a mad dog. A nosode.

For historical review, see Hering's Monograph (North American Journal of Homeopathy, 1879).

The first saliva was obtained by Hering in August, 1833 (see North American Journal of Homeopathy, 1879), and proved by himself in the same year; by Schmid, an Allentown student, in 1835; by Behlert on a number of provers, from 1835 to 1838; by Redman Coxe on himself and family, in 1853; by Knerr, with the 300th and 600th of Jenichen, on a woman bitten by a dog, not rabid, in 1869.

Symptoms observed after bites, and those of persons afflicted with rabies, collected from reliable sources, are followed by a dash '– s. b.'.

Clinical reports have as yet been meagre, owing to the comparatively recent publication of the provings.

[Hydrophobinum : “We follow the suggestion of Ziemsen, Encyclopaedia, vol. 3, p. 472, and substitute Lyssin for Hydrophobinum, as the name hydrophobia, properly speaking, refers to an occasional symptom, and is not a characteristic of the disease of which the classical name is *****.” –C. Hering.]
