Abstract

(1) THIS volume completes the second edition of the well-known monograph upon the endocrine organs issued for the first time in 1916 and founded on a course of lectures (Lane Medical Lectures) delivered by Sir E. Sharpey-Schafer at Stanford University, California, in the summer of 1913. The second edition, in two volumes, has greatly outgrown its predecessor, and the second volume is the larger of the two, more than half of its bulk being devoted to the pituitary body. The other endocrine organs treated in it are: the pineal body, the duodenal and gastric mucous membranes in their relation to the production of secretin and gastrin respectively, the islets of Langerhans of the pancreas and the sex glands, including the interstitial cells of the testis, the ovary, and corpus luteum.
