Through the years the size of this volume has grown with the increased work of the Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry until the present edition has the same number of pages as the book published in 1908, which covered the Council's first four years of activity. This volume epitomizes that phase of the Council's work which may be said to be collateral to the "acceptance" of drugs—the informative consideration of current medical problems in the interest of rational therapeutics. It contains reports of studies by private investigators which were originally published in The Journal under the sponsorship of the Council, such as preliminary discussions of new developments in therapeutics and timely articles on the status of recognized agents as well as reports of omission or rejection of products from New and Nonofficial Remedies. It also offers a record of current decisions on matters of Council policy.
