The physiological and pathological actions of histamine when injected into animals and human beings have been described, and the relationship between histamine shock, anaphylaxis and hypersensitivity has been indicated. The results have been used to show that the mechanism of a large number of symptoms can be explained on a histamine basis. Special mention has been made of Asthma, Acute pulmonary oedema, Measles, the bronchial and intestinal disturbances associated with teething and certain cases of hypersensitivity. The effect of the calcium content of the tissues has been shown. In cases where a large liberation of histamine takes place, changes in the urine have been observed.
