Transactions of the Eighth Conference on Liver Injury, New York, 1949.

AMA Arch Intern Med. 1951;87(3):470. doi:10.1001/archinte.1951.03810030143012.

In this publication, the most recent of a series devoted to discussion of liver disease by prominent investigators in the field, the participants have maintained the high standard of presentation coupled with informality so characteristic of the earlier conferences. There are seven sections, each with free discussion. Recent studies of the anatomy of the liver lobule as revealed by quartz rod visualization and the function of the hepatic artery make up the first two. Then follow studies of massive liver necrosis, the role of liver and kidney in circulatory homeostasis and investigations of the metabolism of the eviscerate rat. The last two sections cover the problems of liver glycogen and hepatic cell protection and the locus of early dietary cirrhosis.

The Transactions should interest all investigators in the field of liver and metabolic disease as well as gastroenterologists and internists in general.
