A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Endocrinologist Collection - One of the earliest references, in the literature to modern endocrinology in the United States, was a report by Harvey Cushing on the removal of the anterior lobe of the pituitary, for the successful treatment of acromegaly. Beginning in the early 1900's, both interest and knowledge of the endocrine glands, grew at an accelerating pace. It soon became obvious that the level of understanding was not yet sufficient to substantiate the growth and use of practices that were pushing the limits of anticipated medical benefits. For the good of this medical field a decision was made to organize a body of involved practitioners to evaluate and guide developments. This turned out to be the Association for the Study of Internal Secretions which filed a Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary for the State of Delaware January 13, 1918. In 1952 the name was officially changed to The Endocrine Society. A brief history: 1909 The Cushing report as noted above. 1916 P.E. Smith and Bennet Allen separately report that pituitary surgery resulted in a diminished growth rate and reduced degree of function of the thyroid gland. 1916 Physicians interested in what would later be called endocrinology conven an AMA meeting and form an organization for the Study of Internal Secretions. 1917 The Association for the Study of Internal secretions incorporates and begins publication of "Endocrinology." 1933 Fevold reports the separation of gonadotrophic hormones into FSH & LH. 1938 Hertz, Roberts and Evans report use of radioactive iodine in the study of thyroid function. 1940's Hertz, Roberts, Hamilton and Soley independently report on the use of radioactive iodine to treat hyperthyroidism. 1943 E. B. Astwood introduces the use of thiouracil to treat thyrotoxicosis. 1950 Hench and Kendall treat rheumatoid arthritis with cortisone. 1950 Samuel Seidlin cures metastatic thyroid carcinoma to the skull with RAI. 1954 Paul Bell determines the molecular weight of ACTH. 1959 G. Aurbach isolates parathyroid hormone. 1960 Berson and Yalow introduce radioimmunoassay using insulin. 1969 Gullemin and Schally isolate GH-RH, LH-RH, FSH-RH & TRH.
