This course in experimental medicine was delivered at the College of France. The lessons (lectures) were collected and published by H. Lefèvre with repinting in 1865 and 1875 without any changes.(Grmek, , 20, p. 315). “This basic work on the application of experimental physiology to medicine contains…memorable work on glycogenesis and experimental diabetes.” (Heirs) (Garrison & Morton 615; Heirs of Hippocrates 1792; Osler, 1507; Waller 954).
