In 1945 the book by Dr. S. E. Gould was published with the expressed purpose of bringing “the more important aspects of this disease to the attention of workers in the field of medicine and possibly also to the attention of producers of pork.” The ultimate aims were to assist the physician and his technicians in the detection of the disease and to control and prevent new infections. Dr. Gould believed that trichinosis, which was all too prevalent and too often fatal, could be controlled and possibly eradicated in the United States.

A review of Dr. Gould's second book, , shows clearly that the above aims have not been met entirely. Although important advances in control have been made in certain geographic areas, it is evident that little progress has been made in the rapid detection of the disease in man by serological or other means.
