The transactions of the second Macy Conference on Connective Tissue, like the previous transactions, are extremly interesting and important, especially with existing interest in corticotropin (ACTH) and cortisone and the present realization that connective tissue and related tissue and substances are not to be regarded as inactive material. These transactions present some of the ideas and studies of greatest interest today. This important book is highly recommended to those working in the field, as well as to others concerned with clinical and experimental medicine in general.
