John G. Reinhold, PhD
1954 Outstanding Contribution to Clinical Chemistry

John G. Reinhold, Pepper Laboratory of Clinical Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, was awarded the 1954 Ernst Bischoff Award in Clinical Chemistry. The award was made at the Annual Meeting Dinner of the American Association of Clinical Chemists at the Hotel McAlpin, New York, September 16. Lt. Col. Monroe Freeman, President of the AACC, made the presentation.

Dr. Reinhold was honored for his work and researches on chemical liver function tests and for his studies of hepatitis. He was also cited for his work on behalf of the AACC and his efforts to secure professional recognition for the clinical chemist. Besides his work for the Association, Dr. Reinhold is chairman of the Committee on Clinical Chemistry of the American Chemical Society.

John Reinhold is the third recipient of the clinical chemistry award, which is given by the Ernst Bischoff Company of Ivoryton, Conn. and administered by the AACC. The award consists of a bronze medal, scroll and honorarium of five hundred dollars.

In his award address, the third Ernst Bischoff Lecture, Dr. Reinhold discussed the work of his group at the University of Pennsylvania and a team at the National Institutes of Health in developing chemical procedures for the detection of carriers of viral hepatitis among blood donors. He showed the methodology that has been successful in good percentage of cases in eliminating the blood from these carrier donors from the blood bank pool. The blood from these carrier donors are not lost to the blood bank as they can be used in the preparation of human serum albumin and other blood products, where the processing eliminates the virus.

Dr. Reinhold’s complete paper will be published in the first issue of the Association’s new journal, CLINICAL CHEMISTRY.
