Bioassays: a Handbook of Quantitative Pharmacology

Nature volume 130, pages 417418 (17 September 1932) | Download Citation



THE author has reviewed in this volume all the more important papers published to the end of 1929 which deal in a quantitative manner with the effects of drugs upon the body. That the task has been laborious is shown by the fact that more than 200 pages, nearly a quarter of the book, is devoted to the bibliography. The author hopes that his work will prevent duplication of effort in the future: it is certainly worth recommending investigators to consult it before commencing a research, both for methods available and also for results already obtained, either with the drug under examination or with those of similar composition or action.
