Key passage(s)




Treatment of acute pneumonia with quinine injections

“To obtain a comparison group, every other case of pneumonia was not treated with [quinine injections].”

“All patients were given “Priessnitz-omslag” [cold water compresses] and expectorants, and if needed, also heart drugs; thus there was no difference between the groups in other treatments.”
