According to the author, the volume presents a comparative study of the sensitivity and specificity of different tests employed in the serum diagnosis of syphilis. After a brief introductory discussion of the phenomena of complement fixation and precipitation in syphilis, the technics of the several tests are considered, followed by comparative results obtained with these tests in the author's laboratory. Serologic studies reported during recent years by the American evaluation committee on serodiagnostic methods, in which the tests are carried out by the respective authors, are of greater value in establishing the dependability of the respective methods.
