These authors have not used cortisone. They reviewed the literature and compiled a mass of speculation without the addition of anything new. The book is of doubtful value and may lead readers not engaged in research in this field astray because of the authoritative way in which it is written. The review of literature is not critical; apparently, one set of results is regarded as being of the same value as another merely because they both appeared in print.
