Charles Huggins, M.D by John Z Bowers( Visual )
1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the career, philosophy and scientific achievements of Dr. Charles Huggins, Director of the Ben May Laboratory for Cancer Research at the University of Chicago. This objective is achieved in an interview with his colleague and friend, Dr. Leon Jacobson, Dean of the Division of Biological Sciences at the Pritzker School of Medicine. In this presentation, Dr. John Z. Bowers describes the series "Leaders in American Medicine" and then introduces Dr. Huggins and Dr. Jacobson. Dr. Huggins then describes his early education in Nova Scotia where he was interested in Latin, Greek, and physical chemistry, his education at Harvard Medical School, and some of his teachers including Professor Cabot and Dr. Cushing. After medical school he went to Ann Arbor where he interned in internal medicine. At this time his work involved drawing and studying blood, urine, and sputum. He decided to determine how much he could learn from laboratory medicine. He then became a surgical intern and describes learning surgical techniques by doing thyroidectomies. His decision to join the teaching staff at the soon to be opened University of Chicago Medical School led to his research in endocrinology and prostatic cancer, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1966. Earlier in his career he had been the recipient of the Gold Medal from the American Medical Association for his work on bone marrow. He then describes his work in breast cancer and explores his views on medical education and role of medicine in the future
Semiannual report to the Atomic Energy Commission by Leon O., M.D Jacobson( )
1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Many patients with acute leukemia exhibit abnormalities of chromosome number or morphology in the affected (leukemic) cells which may be constant in any one patient, but may vary 12 considerably from one patient to another. Although it is presumed that these chromosomal abnormalities are related to the neoplastic behavior of leukemic cells, their precise role in the evolution of the leukemic state remains to be determined. Direct evidence bearing on this issue would accrue from systematic analyses of chromosome constitution beginning with the presumably normal subject, progressing through the pre-leukemic phase, and culminating in the overtly leukemic stage in affected individuals. Such evidence has not been forthcoming because human acute leukemia is still a relatively rare disorder, most cases of which occur sporadically, apparently arising de novo, and usually not recognized until clinically manifest. However, the occurrence of certain hematologic syndromes with a propensity to terminate in acute 4 leukemia, affords an opportunity to assess the importance of chromosomal alterations in the pathogenesis of leukemia. These pre-leukemic or, more precisely, potentially leukemic syndromes, may be classified into the aplastic, myelodysplastic, and myeloproliferative disorders
