[Medicinal formulary, edited by the Health Board for Military Hospitals (1788)].

Abstract

A royal decree in 1788 created a Health Board for military hospitals. The board members included Bayen, assisted by Pagmentier. A collection of "Medicinal formulae" was then published with a view to standardizing and simplifying the remedies prepared in pharmacies. It comprised 159 formulae for internal and external medicines together with a nomenclature for 249 simple and compound drugs used in military hospitals.
