Nineteen volumes of this authoritative series, encompassing a total of 4,536 pages, have appeared since 1963. The 20th volume is ready for publication. These volumes contain reviews and discussions of factual findings and concepts—not reports of original works. Contemplation of these numbers should be sufficient to give an inkling of the rate at which the science of allergy is growing and the speed with which new fundamental findings, abstract ideas, theories, and hypotheses are being added.
Most of the vocabulary, techniques, models, experimental approaches— indeed almost every facet of the basic allergy of today—were undreamed of 20 years ago. Unfortunately, the magnificent advances in fundamental science set forth in this series have not been paralleled in approaches to recognition, prevention, and management of the most common allergic diseases: allergic asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis, allergic drug eruptions, allergic autoaggression, and homograft rejection.
