We publish this week considerable matter relative to the coming session of the American Medical Association. While the local profession and the citizens-of Atlantic City are making special efforts to assure a most enjoyable time for those who attend, and while the location and its environs are admirably adapted for rest and recuperation, still after all, the scientific part is the most important. A casual glance over the Section programs, which appear in this issue, will show that the scientific work will be fully up to the high standard of recent years. All of the programs are excellent, some exceptionally so.
Attention should be called to a symposium in the Section on Pharmacology and Therapeutics. This takes up, from every viewpoint, one of the most practical and live questions of the day, "The Present Status of Serum and Vaccine Therapy with Special Reference to the Products on the American Market."
