It is difficult for the clinician interested in hepatic disease to overestimate the debt owing to laboratory workers who have so diligently studied the pathologic physiology of the liver. Clinical knowledge of hepatic disease, having been almost at a standstill for fifty years, is now being immensely enriched by the contributions of physiologists and biological chemists who have, first, fully informed us of the functions of the liver and later demonstrated its reparative and regenerative properties, its extraordinary reserve functional capacity and, most recently, the activities of the organ in maintaining normal internal environment.
A large part of the success
