  • 1.  Vitex Peduncularis was tried in 5 cases of malaria, 3 Tertian and 2 Estivo-autumnal, details of which are given.
  • 2.  No conclusive evidence was obtained of any effect whatever of the Vitex on the symptoms or the plasmodia in malaria.
  • 3.  On the contrary, the effect of quinine in 4 cases and apparently of Neosalvarsan in 1 case, in all of which Vitex had not been effective, was prompt and striking.
  • 4.  The information obtained seems to show that if Vitex has any effect in malaria it is negligible as compared with that of quinine.
