Defending the priority of “remarkable researches”: The discovery of fibrin ferment (1998)


Description “In the 1870s the British physiologist Arthur Gamgee undertook a campaign to insure Andrew Buchanan of Glasgow credit for his blood clotting research ... Gamgee endeavored to establish Buchanan as the discoverer of fibrin ferment, a clotting factor first isolated and named in 1872 by Alexander Schmidt of Dorpat.”
