*See GARRISON-MORTON #3060 for Andral's work on haematology, the first monograph on this subject - he coined the words 'anaemia' and 'hyperaemia', established analysis of the blood on the basis of exact knowledge of the blood components and analysed blood fibrin and albumin. He recognized several forms of anaemia, including that due to lead poisoning.
