About this Item

First Edition. 8vo. Grey Printed Paper Wraps, as Issued. First Edition. For specific articles cited, see G-M 4670 (Flexner & Lewis), G-M 2600 (Auer and Lewis) A collection of scientific papers (the actual offprints) from many journals published in 1909Ð10 by Members of The Rockefeller Institute. Outstanding contributions by such luminaries as Alexis Carrel, Peyton Rous, Simon Flexner, Hideyo Noguchi and others. Rous's work on parabiosis and the autonomous growth of tumors showed that the independent growth of a tumor is dependent on its ability to stimulate in the host the growth of a vascularizing stroma (the process now known as angiogenesis which is currently providing optimism in studies of the treatment of cancer). These studies are part of Rous's important studies of cancer and its viral origin for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize only many years later. Also colllected here are some of Carrel's magnificent work (also awarded the Nobel Prize)on aortic surgery, patching and vascular anastomoses as well as improvements in his technique of renal transplantation. These studies are part of the foundation which made current organ transplantation and vascular surgery possible by techniques unchanged substantively from those described herein by Carrel. Flexner's work on experimental transmission of poliomyelitis virus in monkeys and the immunity that results, herein described, made possible, 40 years later, the production of polio vaccines and Enders' culturing of the virus of poliomyelitis. Also described by Flexner and Lewis is the pathogenesis and mode of clinical spread of the disease. Auer and Lewis, in another G-M paper, provide the first adequate description of the physiology of anaphylactic shock. Ex Libris. Chips from head & tail of spine and corner of front cover.
