This monograph on allergy should be a great help to physicians who are in general practice. It avoids profuse academic discussions and gets right down to cases. Apparently treatment, with relief or cure, is merely a matter of tracking down the offending allergen or the combination of allergens. Most physicians are not so optimistic about the results of allergic study and therapy.
As to making up solutions accurately, sterilizing multiple bottles, having the patients come in daily for many months or years, this is certainly beyond the scope of the average physician whose practice is general.
The therapy of allergic diseases is well and concisely outlined and should add to the armamentarium of any physician really interested in allergy.
In general, I would say that this little volume is well done and reflects accurate records of manifold cases that would be of benefit to the general practitioner and the specialist
