ZUNIGA MORO, Clara Aurora. Pharmaceutical preparations in the 19th and 20th centuries in the Eastern region of Cuba. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2016, vol.50, n.1. ISSN 0034-7515.

The pharmaceutical preparations marketed in pharmacies of the Eastern region of Cuba during the 19th and 20th centuries were described. The formulations were characterized by their components and indications in addition to presenting the most demanded pharmaceutical specialties at that time. The national and foreign specialties and their suppliers were also reported. The commercialization of pharmaceutical preparations in the Eastern region was characterized at the end of the XIX century and first half of the XX century by a gradual rise of sale of pharmaceutical specialties, mainly from the United States of America and France; however this did not go against the preparations in dispensaries where deep-rooted traditions and gradual evolution of pharmaceutical profession assured wide range of products in the pharmacies of the Eastern region.

Keywords : history of the pharmacy; pharmaceutical preparations; pharmacies in the Eastern region of Cuba.
