To appreciate Dr. Revici’s work it is important to understand he was first and foremost a clinical investigator. Clinical investigation is observation and description. Clinical investigation is neither allegiant to reputed scientific truth nor is it prescriptive. Dr. Revici’s observations and descriptions are original. Yes, he gives tools to facilitate continuing observation but not rules and directives.
Unfortunately, as with many scientists 50-100 years ahead of their time, Dr. Revici was considered a heretic. A Nobel Prize was awarded to scientists in 1982 "for their discoveries concerning prostaglandins and related biologically active substances", a discovery Dr. Revici had already made fifty years earlier at the Pasteur Institute. While physicians and scientists have confirmed some of his discoveries in recent decades, many remain unrecognized. The same transformation that occurred in physics a century ago will occur in medicine this century once Dr. Revici's work, the physics of lipids, is appreciated, applied and continued.
