General Introduction and a Brief History of Amyloidosis

and Background of the Groningen, Helsinki, Oporto and Harriman Amyloid Symposia
  • Alan S. Cohen
Chapter

Abstract

Literary research into the history of amyloid is fascinating, and underscores the complexity of scientific discoveries, the blending of different ideas and concepts, the overlap of new and old information and the ultimate evolution of scientific truths. It also underscores the importance of nomenclature as a unifying force in delineating to scientists whether or not they are talking about the same disease, the same syndrome, the same phenomenon. This is particularly important in dealing with ill-defined entities.

Keywords
