    Bernardo Houssay - Nobel Lecture

  • Extrapancreatic: factors are demonstrated by: (1) the diabetogenic effect obtained in pancreatectomized hypophysectomized animals; (2) the increase in the severity of diabetes in pancreatectomized dogs treated with anterohypophyseal extract; (3) the increase in resistance to insulin which precedes and accompanies hypophyseal diabetes; (4) the fact that hyperglycemia and diabetes occur before that there are visible lesions in the beta cells of the islets, and before insulin secretion diminishes.

    Bernardo Houssay - Nobel Lecture
