For those interested, in "Biblisch-talmudische Medizin" J. Preuss's groundbreaking study has long all that is available. I now see that M J Geller wrote a very thorough article entitled "Akkadian Healing Therapies in the Babylonian Talmud". The article is available here.
Of especial note is pg. 19 ff. which explains a puzzling piece of Talmud as being based on an Akkadian pun.
