Major attention was first focused on the problem of acute hemolytic anemia in the early 1950's, during the Korean War. Large numbers of American Negroes stationed in Korea developed this anemia after taking primaquine for treatment or prophylaxis of malaria. A study group was formed in Chicago under the direction of Alving; it was this group of investigators who contributed much of the early information which has led to our understanding of this type of anemia (Dern, et al, 1954; Dern, Beutler and Alving, 1954; Beutler, Dern, and Alving, 1954). This also resulted in an upsurge of interest in red cell metabolism, and led to many of the advances we are hearing about in this lecture series.
