This morning I received an email from someone in S. Korea. She wanted
to obtain a quantity of Revici's formerly patented device known as a

This tool enables the user to measure the surface tension of a liquid,
namely urine. Revici used this tool to good effect to chart the surface
tension of patients with cancer. The device was invented in 1938, long
before it was understood that surface tension had any biological

In the last decade, Dr. John Clements, M.D., was awarded the Lasker
Award for discovering that surface tension was critically important for
fetal lung development.

It's interesting to note that Clements got his idea for a biological
application for surface tension from Dr. Gustave Freeman, M.D., who had
worked beside Revici in the late 1940's. Freeman later persuaded
Clements that there was indeed a possible biological application.

When Clements subsequently noted what he called "the blowing of
bubbles" in the lungs of premature infants, he pursued that line of

As I can best recall, Revici had previously found 16 applications for
surface tension in human biology.

Clements subsequently developed a lipid medication known as a
"surfactant" that speeds up lung development in premies.

Due to the internet, someone in Korea could quickly access information
in the US to hunt down the device that Revici invented nearly 70 years

So while the quackwashers attempt to supress and ridicule Revici,
etc...his work is spreading...whether it is indirectly recognized
through the Lasker Award or pragmatically by a company wishing to
utilize the Urotensiometers.
