As stated in the preface this series of volumes is offered to provide, under the sponsorship of an outstanding editorial board, a summary of those fields in which progress has occurred recently.

This volume contains summaries of: the use of the Miller-Abbot tube in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the gastrointestinal tract; the use of insulin and protamine zinc insulin in the treatment of diabetes; the sympathetic control of the peripheral vascular system; the antibacterial action of the sulfonamide drugs; the choice of the sulfonamide drugs in the treatment of infection; infections of the urinary tract; present trends in the study of epidemic influenza; the pathogenesis and treatment of hypertension, and nephrosis and riboflavin deficiency. Each summary includes a bibliography.

This volume fills a real need, and the continued publication of the series will be a contribution to the library of every physician.
