Cenni generali di opoterapia. In 8vo, cart. pp. 53. The word "opotherapy" comes from the greek opos (juice) and terapeia (treatment) and was coined by Landouzy, who supposed the juice of organs, or products contained in the juices, to have a therapeutic effect. Opotherapy consists of using desiccated healthy animal tissues or their juices, or the active principles extracted from them; they may be administered by the gastrointestinal route or by injection. The idea of treating diseases with extracts of animal organs is a very old one, and is based upon both tradition and empirical observation. The ferment therapy was introduced in the first '900 by the Nobel prize Elie Metchnikoff and it is based on the wide use of ferments.
