ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a study on insulin done by F. G. Banting and C. H. Best in the early 20th century. It was discovered that the pancreas of foetal calves of under five months development did not contain proteolytic enzymes. Therefore, the traditional belief that pancreatic extracts have no clinical value is false.
