Landsteiner was born in Vienna on 14 June 1868, of Jewish parents. His father Leopold, a journalist, died when the boy was six and he grew up the devoted companion of his mother, Fanny Hess Landsteiner, with whom he led so retired a life that the companions of his young manhood cannot recall even having seen her. She ruled through solicitude. Together they joined the Roman Catholic church when he was a stripling, and a Catholic he declared himself to be in a public statement made almost fifty…

If Simon Flexner had been asked to classify himself, beyond doubt he would have deemed his place to lie amongst the most factual of men; for always he concerned himself with immediate situations and
Historical landmarks of the evolution of forensic medicine and comparative development of medico-legal services in Sri Lanka
Introduction History of any discipline, including medical sciences, is really valuable for us to understand the evolution of the subject through different stages of existence, how the present state

TLDR
In my Presidential address, I will depart from the traditional philosophical discourse and describe a newly recognized clinical syndrome, called PAIDS-Paralyzed Academic Investigator's Disease Syndrome, which afflicts the authors' brightest and most promising physician-scientists.

Hallmarks of the Adaptive Immune Responses
The adaptive immune response differs from innate host defenses in three important features: specificity, memory, and self–non-self-discrimination. Specificity refers to the ability of the products of
Descubrimientos y técnicas que han contribuido a mejorar el tratamiento de las enfermedades pancreáticas

The Specificity of Serological Reactions
THE study of serological reactions has for years attracted many workers. There have been fierce controversies between the exponents of differing theories, and these controversies have stimulated both
ON THE INHERITANCE OF AGGLUTINOGENS OF HUMAN BLOOD DEMONSTRABLE BY IMMUNE AGGLUTININS
TLDR
It is demonstrated that it is feasible to investigate the heredity of serological structures of human blood other than the group agglutinogens and it seems very probable that the properties M and N do not appear in the offspring when they are absent in both parents.
On the Racial Distribution of Some Agglutinable Structures of Human Blood
TLDR
Positive results were obtained by Fitzgerald who feels justified in concluding that with the method employed “the existence of specific racial differences … has not been proven” and one would scarcely expect a more favorable outcome without resorting to very sensitive methods.
The Specificity of Serological Reactions
This little book brings within the reach of workers in immunology almost a fabulous wealth of references in an exceptionally small compass. The references are indicated, generally, serially by small
Serological Examination of a Species-Hybrid II. Tests with Normal Agglutinins
TLDR
In the course of the investigation reported in the previous paper the subject is not largely connected with the problem of the inheritance of species-specific properties, since most of the reactions observed have the character of isoagglutinin reactions and have therefore nothing to do with species-differences.
Serological Examination of a Specieshybrid I. On the Inheritance of Species-Specific Qualities
TLDR
The present paper is concerned with the heredity of the speciesspecific properties in animals as shown by serum reactions, and tries first to differentiate the specific substances contained in the red blood cells with immune agglutinins.
SEROLOGICAL STUDIES ON THE BLOOD OF THE PRIMATES
TLDR
Findings confirm the opinion that the anthropoid apes do not rank in the genealogical tree between lower monkeys and man and that constant racial serological differences among human bloods are certainly smaller than the differences between the bloods of man and the anthropoids.
On the heterogenetic haptene.
In a previous communication 1 it was stated that active fractions of the specific part of the heterogenetic antigen, haptene, were obtained by fractional precipitation with alcohol from a solution in
FORENSIC APPLICATION OF SEROLOGIC INDIVIDUALITY TESTS
TLDR
Serologic methods were applied in forensic medicine shortly after the discovery of immunologic species characteristics and it was obvious from the outset that the underlying blood properties are constitutional and, following the rediscovery of Mendel's laws by de Vries, Correns and Tschermak, this problem was solved.
On the Presence of M Agglutinogens in the Blood of Monkeys
TLDR
The explanation of the apparent discrepancies concerning the blood of lower monkeys has now been found in the fact that various anti-M immune sera are not identical in their reactions.
