The concept that women may become sensitized to the hormones secreted by their own endocrine glands has occurred to a number of observers widely separated in time, place and viewpoint. For example, Finch1 in 1938, and later (1940), published his finding that the nausea and vomiting of early pregnancy are allergic in origin and that they can be relieved by desensitization with a hormone derived from corpus luteum. My earlier reports on sensitivity to gonadotropins,2 and on the technic of testing and the results of treatment with a preparation of gonadotropins,3 appeared in 1942 and 1943.
