Abstract

It is significant that the introductory contribution to the newly launched Archives of Otolaryngology1 strives vigorously and frankly to liberate the devotees of the specialized practice in disorders of the ear, nose and throat from some of the shackles of pseudoscientific medicine with which they have all too often been encumbered. Readers of The Journal are aware of its attitude toward the various and numerous claims of endocrine therapy recorded in an enormous number of printed pages. Writing with the insight of the experienced investigator, Carlson 1 has clearly pointed out the tests which allegations of specific function on the part of endocrine organs must meet: First, we remove the endocrine organs in question in otherwise healthy animals, and we note the natural history of the sequelae of such removal. Then we feed or inject this animal with various preparations of the organ removed, and determine to what extent
