This little book presents in a summarizing way directions and recommendations for using curative serums and vaccines in medical practice. The number of proprietary preparations that receive favorable mention is startling: gonargin, arthigon, aolan, vigantol, opsonogen, leukogen, staphar, staphyloyatren, streptoserin, rivanol, partigene, graminol, ephetonin, omnadin, detoxin, hemotest, serovakzin, sympathol and others. For this reason if for no other the book will be of no interest to American physicians. While not wholly uncritical, the tendency of the presentation is inevitably toward the indiscriminate use of the serums and vaccines and toward thoughtless acceptance of the fallacy "post hoc ergo propter hoc."
