The project "Review and Revision of Kent's Repertory in relation to other works -
Additions to Boericke's Repertory" on chapter Nose is based on Kent's Repertorium Generale
by J. Kunzli which contains the Kent's Repertory as well as the rubrics and drugs confirmed
from various references and suffixed with a number (additions in Chapters "Mouth & Teeth"
have been incorporated in Repertory of Homoeopathic Materia Medica by Dr. J.T. Kent).
A comparative study of Kent's Repertorium Generale with O.E. Boericke's Repertory is undertaken and addition of new rubrics/ drugs were recommended for inclusion after
verifying the same from the known sources like Hahnemann' s Chronic Diseases/Materia
Medica Pura, Allen's Encyclopedia of Pure Materia Medica, Hering's Guiding Symptoms,
Clarke's Dictionary of Practical Materia Medica (See Bibliography) etc., keeping in view
Kent's philosophical framework. Besides these, some of the rubrics/drugs have also been
recommended for inclusion from other sources like T.F. Allen's Hand book of Materia
Medica, Farrington's Clinical Materia Medica, Norton's Ophthalmic Diseases and Dr: S.C.
Ghose's Drugs of Hindoosthan. The additions incorporated in this work also contain clinical
experiences of the Sub-committee on Literary Research and experiences gained in the Drug
Proving and Clinical Verification Project under this Council. The recommendations of the
research workers are scrutinized by the Literary Sub-committee consisting of experts in the
field of Repertory. On the basis of their approval, a manuscript is finally prepared. For the
sake of propriety and distinction, these additions have been suffixed with numerical numbers
signifying the source. The Kunzli's repertory lists 72 sources. For the purposes of uniformity
in enlarging the scope of Kent's Repertorium Generale serial numbers depicted in the list of
sources by Kunzli in the Kent's Repertorium Generale have been retained and for the sources
which are not included therein new numbers have been given after the last serial number,
details of which appear in this work (S. No. 24 is missing in Kunzli's list).
The additional drugs which appear in italics in Boericke's Repertory have been
shown in italics and rest all have been shown in ordinary type (lowest grade). New rubrics
have been indicated with an asterisk. In this text there are black points which have been
entered by Kunzli to relay his own therapeutic experiences. A black point entered after a drug
means that the therapeutic efficacy of a drug has been frequently proven. The black point
after the symptom underscores the therapeutic importance of the rubric and often points
directly to the drug in question, or at least to the general area. These therapeutic hints both
broaden and enrich the Kentian homoeopathic school, which was evolved over Pierre
Schmidt and Kunzli. A list of each of the quoted authors and a list of remedies with their
abbreviations are also added to facilitate identification of authors and drugs clearly.
