To the Editor:—
In reply to Dr. Rebhun's letter about bronchial asthma (JAMA184:601 [May 18] 1963) may I say that simplicity is no stranger to truth. Pharmacology has an old law which states that the number of remedies employed in the treatment of any disease is inversely proportional to their effectiveness.I have readily available for anyone interested the names and full addresses of the last more-than-300 patients whom I have treated for bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis, and pulmonary emphysema. For every one who so much as intimates that he feels unlucky in having been treated by me I will contribute the sum of $100 to any charity Dr. Rebhun wishes to designate.
