John hunter(1728 – 1793)-1792
Arnold Adolph Berthold ( 1 803-1 86 1 ) -1849
Concept of internal secretion-established in scientific knowledge
The great triumvirate
1855-the glycogenic function of the liver; in the course of this he was led to the conclusion, which throws light on the causation of diabetes mellitus, that the liver, in addition to secreting bile, is the seat of an internal secretion, by which it prepares sugar at the expense of the elements of the blood passing through it
“lessons on experimental physiology”
1855- “Constitutional And Local Effects Of Disease Of Supra Renal Capsule”
Role of internal secretion is demonstrated through anatomical observations
Addisonian anemia/pernicious anemia
1855- Demonstrated that removal of the adrenal gland resulted in death, due to lack of essential hormones.
1905-ernest h starling

described role of thyroid in symptom complex of cretinism
Student assistant Charles H. Best and Frederick G. weighs just 45lbs and her chances of surviving for much longer are very, very poor. She was one of the first patients to be treated with insulin extracted from the pancreases of slaughtered cattle. Banting are standing on the roof of the medical building with one of the diabetic dogs used in their experiments with insulin
