|Title||Paper, 'On the coagulation of the blood' by William Dobinson Halliburton|
|Description||Halliburton writes: 'The theory to account for the coagulation of the blood which is most generally accepted at the present day is that of Hammarsten; he teaches that coagulation is dependent upon the conversion of a proteid substance, fibrinogen, which exists in solution in the plasma, into fibrin by means of a ferment liberated by the disintegration of the white blood corpuscles which occurs when the blood leaves the living blood-vessel.'|
