This classic work on the action of drugs and their applications in therapeutics had been constantly revised by Professor Cushny through eight editions. The rapid progress in experimental investigation and practical application in the field of therapeutics is strikingly shown in comparing these eight editions during the twenty-five years in which they appeared. In the eighth changes were made by Cushny in the chapters on digitalis and the cinchona bases, and on ergot. He also added new chapters on histamine action and the related symptoms of anaphylaxis and shock, and on the insulin treatment of diabetes, and on the vitamins.
