Research Facts
Ergotin is used to treat menorrhagia (abnormally heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding), to control internal bleeding, and as an oxytocic (to induce labour). In addition to coming in liquid form for injection, Ingram and Bell also sold Ergotin in tablet form, coated in chocolate or coated in sugar with strychnine. Ergotin comes from the fungus ergot, which affects cereal grass. It works by contracting the arterioles and unstriped muscle fibres. It was also used to control bleeding after childbirth, treat spinal and cerebral congestion, paralysis of the bladder, and diabetes mellitus.
Ingram & Bell Limited was a medical supply company first established in Toronto in 1905; the company became a Canadian leader in the distribution of medical products; their wide selection included equipment, surgical tools, and pharmaceuticals; as the company grew, they established branches in Montreal, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver; became Ingram & Bell Inc. and 49% owned by MDS in 1986; MDS acquired 100% in 1993; became Source Medical Corporation after merger with Allegiance Healthcare Canada Inc. in 1997; acquired by Cardinal Health Canada Inc. in 2005.
