The results of the work to be summarized here and leading to the conclusion that the anterior pituitary manufactures and excretes a specific thyreoactivator hormone by means of which the hypophysis controls the activity of the thyroid, were reported first, by Uhlenhuth and Schwartzbach, in 1926, at the annual meeting of the American Zoölogists in Philadelphia.3 A brief account covering all the essential points of evidence was published by Uhlenhuth and Schwartzbach, in 1927.
The history of investigations pertaining to the subject with which the present article is dealing, has been discussed briefly, yet in its most essential features, in
