The procedures in the present day management of some of the allergic manifestations are chiefly the result of concepts and experimental findings established many years earlier. The chief events responsible for the development of the practice of allergy have been: the demonstration of anaphylactic phenomena at the turn of this century by Hericourt and Richet,1 Arthus2 and others; the concept of bacterial allergy advanced by Von Pirquet3; the production of the refractory state, or desensitization, in sensitized animals; the attention called by such men as Wolff-Eisner4 and Meltzer5 to the resemblance of hay fever and asthma to the anaphylactic symptoms
