STUDENT
HEALTH
ECZEMA-HAY FEVER--ASTHMA
Buenaventura Jimenez, M.D.

Up to a short time ago, eczema,
hay fever, and asthma were con-
sidered to be different diseases1
with distinct causes, but now we1
think they are aspects of the same
human hypersensitiveness.
In fact, we know that there is
a sequence of events, which can
be expressed as follows: eczema
in infancy; gastro-intestinal dis-
turbances in childhood; hay fever
in adolescence; asthma in the vir-
ile age; bronchitis later on in life;
and heart disease in old age. These
cycles can be shortened or length-
ened, for example, one may see a
small child suffering with asthma
or a case of hay fever appearing
after 25 years of age, the symp-
toms of each cycle varying from a
very mild attack to a severe one.
We claim that this phenomenon
of sensitization is progressive,
growing worse and worse; conse-
quently it is of great importance
that these cases should be treated
early in life because up through
asthma, we can cure the patient, if
we are fortunate enough to find
the offending agent or agents. Af-
ter the stage of asthma pathologi-
cal conditions have developed and
the sick person is not in condi-
tion to be completely cured.
There are a number of other
symptoms which are to some de-
gree related to this group. We do
not claim that the physician can
cure all of them, but we do certain-
ly know that a great number of
them can be benefited. Besides
eczema, hay fever, and asthma
which can be cured, one is able to
improve many cases of urticaria
(hives); hyperasthetic rhinitis with
its sneezing and nasal discharge;
prevent the recurrence of nasal
polyps; frequent colds (90 per cent
are not colds but symptoms of sen-
sitization), gastro-intestinal upsets
which may range from a slight dis-
comfort, gas formation, colic or
cramps, to attacks of acute indis-
gestion with loose movements of
the bowels; gastric ulcers and gall
bladder disturbances; attacks sim-
ulating appendicitis; bed-wetting;
irritation or any mucous mem-
brane of the body with its corre-
sponding inflammation and dis-
charge; sinus trouble; insomnia;
headaches; migraine;certain cases
of epilepsy; underweight; differ-
ent forms of pain; some .skin dis-

BIOLOGICAL AMP
TO OPENJUINE ZU
George La Rue, Director, Expects
Increase Over Previous
Years' Enrollment.
The University biological station,
termed the largest inland camp of
its kind hi the world and main-
tained for the study of the natural
sciences, will open its twenty-third
consecutive annual season on Jun
29, according to Prof. George R.
LaRue, director.
Last year the camp drew students
from 21 states. The enrollment has
grown from 13 in 1909 to 97 in 1930,
and during the next few years Pro-
fessor LaRue expects a greater in-
crease than formerly.
Work of definite economic value
is accomplished at the camp where
research work concerning the para-
sites of fishes, tame and wild ducks
are conducted. Since the inception
of the camp in 1909, 246 research
papers have been issued on various
biological subjects.
Students who have had element-
ary college work in biology, may
attend the station, although the
majority of those attending are
graduates. Eight courses in botany
and seven in zoology are offered for
undergraduates, in addition to di-
rected research work for advanced
students, all giving University credit.
The regular work at the camp
will begin June 27 with registration

cursions during the term.
orders; and other conditions.
We thing that this phenomen-
on of sensitization is of a heredi-
tary nature. It follows the law of
Mendel. One who belongs to the
group of hypersensitiveness must
have some one in his family suffer-
ing with some of the above symp-
toms. We know that only 15 to 25
per cent of humanity is affected.
There are certainly 75' per cent of
human beings who do not belong
to the group of sensitization. One
does not inherit the specific dis-
ease; it is only the tendency that
is inherited. It affects both sexes
and has no special preference for
any type of person or race, and it
may occur at any age. Tests for
the condition are made at the
Health Service.
