Abstract

THE heightened interest in the cultural and intellectual activities of the U. S. S. R. has stimulated a desire to know more about the work of outstanding Russian men of science who belong to the recent past, and thus the anniversary of the birth of Metchnikoff on May 16, 1845, is a fitting time to survey his achievements and to indicate the significance at the present day of his fundamental work on the role of phagocytosis in inflammation and immunity.
