If someone wants to learn about some new technique in medicine, the best thing to do is to go to the place where much of the pioneer work has been done. As we know, at the beginning, much fine work on the transplantation of kidneys was done in the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital under the direction of Dr. Francis D. Moore, Moseley Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School, and Surgeon-in-Chief at the Brigham Hospital. Many of us who today are wondering what the present status of this transplatation of organs is should read this book by the man who knows so much about the subject.
Dr. Moore describes the progress that has been made since 1950 in providing "new organs for old," and he tells of the many problems that are still having to be solved in regard to genetics, biochemistry, and particularly immunology. The book is doubly helpful
