As the subtitle indicates, this small book is not concerned about the general problem of infectious disease, but summarizes the present status of the various biological products available to the physician. The author, a research bacteriologist, has limited himself to what is essentially a source of reference regarding applied immunology. There is no attempt to discuss the broad aspects of the diseases mentioned.
This reviewer feels that the text will be of interest primarily to preclinical students and technicians. The physician has little need for a separate monograph of this type in that therapy and prophylaxis must always be considered in relation to the other aspects of disease.
