First Edition. Legallois’s medical thesis, on whether blood is identical in all vessels through which it flows, anticipated the concept of internal secretion. “Legallois pointed out that although blood is identical in all the arteries, it changes as it passes through the various organs and thus one organ may by its products influences all the others. This dissertation revealed Legallois’s interest in experimental physiology and was widely appreciated as a model of physiological discussion” (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).
