Physiology and Biochemistry in Modern Medicine


    PEOT. MACLEOD'S text-book is now well established in the literature, in fact, it has reached its sixth edition in the course of twice as many years. It blends under one cover general and special physiology and biochemistry and applied or clinical physiology: it is larger than works devoted to clinical physiology, but makes no attempt to deal in any detailed manner with many of the problems of specialised physiology. In fact, this science has now so many branches, general, biochemical, and histological, that it has become impossible for one volume to deal adequately with all. Prof. Macleod has performed the useful service of selecting from the mass of literature material suitable for welding into a whole as human physiology, which is almost the same as clinical medicine, when healthy, and not diseased, individuals rre the subject of study.
