The authors have studied, from a chemical-toxicological and an anatomo-histopathological point of view, five subjects who died from reactions to drugs. Considering that the quantity of both drug and the blended substances appeared not to be sufficient to account for the death, and having noticed in all the subjects a fairly remarkable damage to the liver, the authors believe that the cause of death is to be ascribed to the toxic effects of the drugs found in the bowels, with reference to their destroying defect at the hepatic level.

Abstract

The authors have studied, from a chemical-toxicological and an anatomo-histopathological point of view, five subjects who died from reactions to drugs. Considering that the quantity of both drug and the blended substances appeared not to be sufficient to account for the death, and having noticed in all the subjects a fairly remarkable damage to the liver, the authors believe that the cause of death is to be ascribed to the toxic effects of the drugs found in the bowels, with reference to their destroying defect at the hepatic level.
