Since one of us (K.) suffers from this affection, we took the opportunity of investigating the mechanism of the reaction and the serological conditions concerned. In the course of the work a series of controlled tests were carried out on the other one (P.) who is a hay-fever patient, and on several non-sensitive colleagues who kindly placed themselves at our disposal.
