ISBN: 1569802033 "In the 1950's and 60's, while he was the chairman of the department of medicine at Yale, Dr. Beeson conducted his penetrating research on the way in which infections with disease-causing organisms lead to fevers. / Working with Dr. Elisha Atkins and others, he demonstrated that fever was often a bodily response to infection, and was not merely caused by an attack by the foreign organisms, as had been theorized. The Yale researchers found that a substance released by the body's white blood cells provoked a fever response. They isolated the substance, a protein called interleukin-1, and showed that it was released by white blood cells called leukocytes." – New York Times, 8/18/2006.
