Cumarindine is a topical salve manufactured in Altoona. The product was developed in the 1920s by James Terrell. His daughter, Dulcie Whitten took over the business in the 1940s and continued to operate it, filling individual orders from a home laboratory, until 2008.

After Whitten's death, a group of investors led by Daniel Reynolds obtained the formula from UAB technologist James Kirksey and relaunched the salve in 2013.
