This was used to inject pellets of desoxycorticosterone acetate into patients with Addison's disease; four or five pellets were injected at one time at 9-12-month intervals.
This treatment was replaced ca. 1960 by the drug prentasome. Dr. Watt was the pellet injector for all of the Toronto patients with Addison's disease between 1940 and 1960. He practised internal medicine and haematology at Toronto Western Hospital.

Dr. A. W. Chase's Ointment. National Museum of American History.
Why the appeal? A study of almanacs advertising Dr. Chase's patent medicines, 1904–1959. Denise Maines.
Research Facts
The indications or uses for this product as provided by the manufacturer are: Is an antiseptic, soothing and healing treatment for every form of itching skin diesease, eczema, salt rheum, itching, bleeding and protruding piles, pimples, black-heads, old sores, poisoned skin, hives, insect bites, inflamed eyelids, itch, barber's itch, sore feet and toes, chilblains and frostbites.
Patent medicines were advertised, and presumably consumed, with much vigour in the late-19th and early-20th centuries.
In 1904, the original product line included Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, Liver Cure, Backache Plasters, Ointment, Catarrh Cure, Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine and Kidney-Liver Pills. Somewhere between 1924 and 1927, Dr. Chase's Liniment was added to this list, and Mouthwash was sold between 1927 and 1938. Paradol, a painkiller, was introduced in the 1950s and D.M.H Cough Syrups, Cold Tablets and Enerjets emerged in 1959. Though Backache Plasters were not advertised in the 1930s, they were included in the 1950s, so that the list of medicines sold by Dr. Chase's Medicine Company in 1959 contains all of the original product line with only minor modifications to a few of these products, as well as the new arrivals.
