Representing the International Contact Dermatitis Research Group, Bandmann and Fregert publish a clinical pocketbook of 100 pages entitled Patch Testing: Introduction to its Uses.
This presentation deals with the specifics of the patch testing method for the demonstration of contact allergy and photo-contact allergy. An extensive table lists all the commercially available test substances and gives their respective concentrations, vehicles, quantities, and types of packaging together with their European and American supply sources.
This clearly printed and arranged pocketbook edition, accompanied by a good index for quick orientation, is a welcome and necessary guide for the German dermatologist and industrial physician. A similar condensed English text on all phases and details of patch testing, offered as a separate publication, would be extremely useful and should be made available.
