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.
