This book is a compilation of all the work which Zondek. and his co-workers have done in the field of endocrinology; it contains data not published heretofore. The contributions which the author has made, in collaboration chiefly with Aschheim, represent one of the greatest practical advances made in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. The author began his studies on the hormones of the ovaries and the hypophysis in 1913 and has persistently carried on his research.
