Abstract

This presents an interesting discussion of the fundamental principles of anaphylaxis. The rôles an antigenic protein may play in anaphylaxis, namely, sensitization, shock production and desensitization, are discussed with illustrative clinical applcations. Sensitization to pollens, sensitization to medicinal substances such as quinine, and other allergic manifestations are treated as instances of anaphylaxis without adequate reference to their peculiar problems. The book falls far short of giving a satisfactory account of the present knowledge of clinical allergy.
