Abstract

The treatment of bronchial asthma discussed in this article depends largely on the work of I. C. Walker and R. V. Cooke. To Walker, especially, belongs the credit of demonstrating, from 1917 to 1920, through thirty articles, that protein sensitization is the cause of most bronchial asthma and of outlining a workable method of diagnosis and treatment. To Cooke belongs the credit of demonstrating the importance of inhalants in the etiology of bronchial asthma. This paper is based on 234 cases of bronchial asthma in which the patients have cooperated satisfactorily in their treatment during the years 1923 and 1924. No cases are reported in which the patients have not cooperated and have not been under observation for a minimum of four months. In cases treated before 1923 the results were not as good as those reported here because of our lack of knowledge of many of the causes of
