Summary In 1980 a case of myxedema was treated in Lisbon by the implantation of a sheep thyroid gland with the immediate improvement in the patient s condition. A few years later, medications for the then ill-explained condition of the menopause included tablets made from cow ovaries. In the first quarter of the 20th century the identification vitamin D3 and its sunlight driven production in skin paved the way to the elimination of rickets as a major medical problem. Twenty years or so later Sir Vincent Wigglesworth established the endocrine basis of developmental moulting in insects, arguably the mos
