There is no field in medicine that presents such opportunities for exploration
as therapeutics. There is none in which so much work has been done and none
where such results may be expected. Therapeutics is being revolutionized.
The biologic laboratory has become one of the important factors in the production
of our remedies. It not only furnishes us with the various serums and animal
extracts now so universally used, but it also affords us a means of standardizing
vegetable products so that the very best results may be attained.
