in biochemistry. He produced more than 1,000 publications, writing on such subj

overed that upon the entry of a foreign protein into the blood, the bodily react
ion is a defensive fermentation that causes disintegration of the protein. His n
ame was given to the reaction. In 1912 he developed a serological test for pregn
ancy based on this reaction. The test proved to be unreliable, however, and in 1
928 it was superseded by the Aschheim-Zondek test.</tx></bio>

d a total of 930 years. The term <it>Adam's apple</it> arose through a misinterp
retation of the Hebrew for {ldquo}protuberance on man{rdquo} used to denote this
anatomical part. The late Hebrew word for protuberance is very similar to the w

so known for his test, first reported in 1922, for determining the specific grav

<tx>English physician. Regarded as the father of modern endocrinology, Addison
inaugurated the study of internal secretion and the endocrine glands. With John
Morgan, he wrote the first book in English on the action of poisons in the livin
g body, and he was the first to use static electricity in the treatment of spasm
odic diseases. In 1849 he published a preliminary description of adrenocortical
insufficiency. In an 1855 monograph he gave a full, classic description of this
syndrome and an equally classic description of pernicious anemia. Shortly afterw
ard, the French physician Armand Trousseau named these two diseases Addison's di
sease and addisonian anemia. Addison also produced original and significant work
s on tuberculosis, pneumonia, and skin disease.</tx></bio>

Freud and Carl Jung, Adler is considered one of the founders of modern psychiat

emphasis placed on sex as an underlying cause of neurosis. In 1907 he advanced
his theory that physical defects may affect the psyche, producing feelings of in
feriority and attempts at psychological compensation which, if unsuccessful, may
lead to neurosis. The concept of the inferiority complex has grown out of Adler

, <tx>German neurologist. Alzheimer was noted for his work in the pathology of t

stology. Alzheimer published papers on topics that include acute alcoholic delir
ium, schizophrenia, epilepsy, syphilitic meningomyelitis and encephalitis, glios
is, Huntington's chorea, and hysterical bulbar paralysis. In 1894 he published a
noteworthy description of arteriosclerotic atrophy of the brain. With Franz Nis
sl he produced <it>Histologic and Histopathologic Studies of the Cerebral Cortex
</it>(1904{ndash}1908), a six-volume encyclopedia that described normal and abno
rmal structures in the central nervous system. In 1907 he published his classic
description of presenile dementia. The disease was later named in his honor by t
