"The basic principle of free transplantation, contained in the ancient Indian tradition, constituted, when fully understood and applied, the greatest single advance of the nineteenth century. Interest in the principles of the regeneration and transplantation of animal tissues was widespread in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, but it was Giuseppe Baronio, physician and naturalist of milan, who first demonstrated on sheep that full-thckness skin grafts could be successfully transplanted after detachment from the body. In the three experiments which he described in 1804 Baronio removed from the back of a sheep patches of akin which he transplanted to new site on the same aheep, one immediately, a second after eighteen minutes, and a third after one hour of detachment. All became succefully adherent to the new bed" (Gnudi & Webster). "This success also indicates another characteristic of the work to be performed from that time onwards: the use of animals for experiments under closely controlled conditions The hand of science had now fimly grasped the hand of surgery and was leading the latter away from the somewhat wild theorizing to which most surgeons had been prone from the earliest times."
