S. O. WAIFE, M.D.†
Progress in this most important and common of diseases continues to be disappointingly slow. Probably the exigencies of war have retarded research into the tantalizing problem of arterial disease. On the other hand there is increasing awareness of the aging of our population, and of the increasing number of deaths among young and old due to arteriosclerosis.
Some of the more interesting and important developments in the past two or three years will be discussed here. No attempt is made to cover the complete literature, but emphasis will be given to work which the author believes to be of significance.
