The article focuses on allergic reactions associated with use of dextran in the treatment of thrombophlebitis and arterial insufficiency. Although dextran, a polysaccharide product of the fermentation of sucrose by the organism Leuconostoc mesenteroides, has long been known to be allergenic in humans, the incidence of adverse reactions has been very low. In a study, the authors treated 40 patients with either thrombophlebitis or inoperable peripheral arterial insufficiency with dextran.
