This is the second volume in a series devoted to methods and technics that are useful in medical research. Each chapter contained in these volumes is written by a recognized authority on the subject presented. The second volume contains three sections. The first section deals with the methods of study and technics used in investigations involving bacterial viruses. This section is written by Mark Adams. The second section presents a complete résumé of technics and procedures used in evaluating pulmonary function. This section is written by Julius H. Comroe, Jr., who has done much work in the application of pulmonary function tests to clinical problems. The third section, written by Eleanor H. Venning, is concerned with the assay of hormonal secretions in urine and blood. The procedures described are mostly bioassay technics, although chemical methods are also included where they are available. All three sections contain many references and illustrations.
