Hormones

Abstract

The discovery of hormones has usually followed physiological observations, and the first measurements of hormones have been by bioassays. Once a hormone has been identified, chemical or immunoassays have been developed. A wide variety of procedures are in current use according to analytical requirements. These methods are described in a recent 4 volume work (18).
