Goldman Sachs asks in biotech research report: ‘Is curing patients a sustainable business model?’

“The potential to deliver ‘one shot cures’ is one of the most attractive aspects of gene therapy, genetically-engineered cell therapy and gene editing. However, such treatments offer a very different outlook with regard to recurring revenue versus chronic therapies,” analyst Salveen Richter wrote in the note to clients Tuesday. “While this proposition carries tremendous value for patients and society, it could represent a challenge for genome medicine developers looking for sustained cash flow.”

7 Best Remedy Tips from William H. Burt, M. D. (1895)

Sterculia Acuminata

Outranks China, as a reconstituent tonic, in diseases of the nervous system, and in chronic dyspepsia; the best remedy ever discovered to act as a tonic in persons of drinking habits.

Acidum Sulphuricum

For acute articular, inflammatory rheumatism, aggravated by touch and motion, this is without doubt the best remedy we have, relieving the pain in two days.


For the first stage of diphtheria, it is the best remedy we have. Tonsils and soft palate red, covered with pseudo-membrane, with septic fever; great soreness of all the muscles, and pro- found debility.


For acute and sudden inflammation of the mammae, it is the best remedy we have.

Dioscorea Villosa

Best remedy we have for biliary colic, to arrest the pain while the gallstone is passing.  Colic that comes on suddenly and leaves suddenly; spasmodic colic, with much flatulence.

Hamamelis Virginica

For passive venous hemorrhages from all parts of the body, — nose, stomach, lungs, or bowels, — it is our best remedy, depending upon the state of the blood vessels, rather than on that of the blood.


For haemoptysis, with rattling cough and expectoration of blood, with a feeling of constriction of the chest, it is about the best remedy we have.

Veterinary Tips from Dr. F.A. Gunther  

The homeopathic treatment of the horse, the ox, the sheep, the dog, and other domestic animals.  – F. A. Gunther

Involuntary Closing of the Eye-Lids

Hyoscyamus is the remedy to be employed in the spasmodic closing of the eyelids, which is observed sometimes in cases of periodical ophthalmia. It is frequently met with, however, as an isolated symptom. Chammomilla has been useful in a case where Hyoscyamus had produced no effect.

Inflammation of the Palate

This affection is often complicated with inflammation of the pharynx, so that the horse can neither eat nor drink. The best remedy for it is mercurius vivus, particularly when there is combined with it salivation more or less profuse. Belladonna and aurum have also been found useful.

Wounds of the Eyes

Lesions of the eyes by mechanical causes, such as blows, strokes with the whip, punctures, etc. are generally followed by inflammation which must be treated with some doses of Aconitum, after which Arnica, employed both internally and externally, generally accomplishes the cure in a very little time. If some want of clearness remain, we employ Coninm, or, alternately, Cannabis and Belladonna.

In one case arnica failed in the treatment of a wound made with a needle, which penetrated deep into the eye, but Coninm effected a speedy cure.

Overloading of the Stomach

Overloading of the stomach, which may bring on gastritis, or other bad consequences, is not uncommon in horses to which too much corn has been given, or which have slipped their head-collar and helped themselves. Coffea cruda is the best remedy in all cases. If too much delay has been made, it is to Antimonium crudum we must have recourse. When there is constipation at the same time, Nux vomica is indicated. Pulsatilla is the remedy to be administered when diarrhoea supervenes, a case in which Arsenicum also is of great use.

Some Tips from Dr Bernhard Baehr, M. D.   (1872)

Acute Laryngo-tracheal Catarrh

Next to Aconite, Spongia is the principal remedy in the so-called catarrhal croup, with distinct symptoms of oedema of the mucous lining of the glottis. The cough is barking, hoarse, hollow, comes in paroxysms, especially at night, without expectoration and wheezing inspirations.

Hepar sulphuris bears a good deal of resemblance to Spongia. It should be given, if mucus commences to be raised, the barking sound of the cough continues, there is a great deal of hoarseness, symptoms of ulceration of the larynx begin to make their appearance, and a constant rattling of mucus is heard in the larynx.

Belladonna may prove most serviceable in the first few days, if the catarrh is associated with fever: fever with disposition to perspire and sleep, violent stinging pains in the larynx, a dry, barking spasmodic cough coming on in paroxysms, exacerbating more particularly in the evening.

Mercurius acts similarly to Belladonna in this disease. It is suitable at the commencement of febrile laryngitis, if the following symptoms are present: chilliness and great sensitiveness to cold, mingled with frequent paroxysms of a burning heat, dry, distressing cough occurring more particularly at night and racking the frame.

Arsenicum when there is glowing fever-heat with constant thirst, yawning,

stretching, a prostrate feeling in the whole body.

The Science of Therapeutics According to the Principles of Homeopathy –

Bernhard Baehr, M. D.   (1872)


Collinsonia  — Dr. S. R. Schultz, in Eclectic Review, says that Collinsonia is a specific remedy for haemorrhoids. A recent case can be cured between three days and one week. The worst and most obstinate cases can be relieved and permanently benefited by Collinsonia.  Also, when piles are operated upon this remedy may be given before and after the operation with most excellent advantage.

Some Tips in Croup and Measles from Dr. Alphonse Teste MD

Hepar in Croup

“When the cough is hollow and whistling,” says Hering, Hepar Sulphur is always the best remedy.

Aconite in Croup

Aconite is only indicated in croup in the rare cases of violent fever in the beginning. The moment that the febrile symptoms diminish, or when it seems to produce no effect, it should be discontinued, and that finally, under penalty of losing precious time, when often the minutes are to be counted.


Bryonia, several times repeated, at a few hours’ in terval, is the best means of recalling the eruption to the skin, when it is accidentally suspended or repelled.

Nux and Ignatia are indicated by the persistence of a hoarse cough, with constriction of the chest, without great frequency of the pulse.

Mercurius serves to moderate the excessive sweats, and to combat the relaxation of the bowels, if it should continue more than a few days after the disappearance of the eruption.

Causticum is a precious medicine when there remains a dry cough, with constipation, but no fever; or when there is swelling of the epigastrium, or symp- toms of gastralgia.
