The Trauma Conference, sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences was organized to review in broad perspective the complete status of trama research and its support. Striking advances were noted for fluid resuscitation, wound healing, nutrition of the injured, and the prevention of reversal of pulmonary and renal failures. It was observed that injury-induced gluconeogenesis contributes to nitrogen loss and thence to altered hepatic metabolism. Contractural healing deformities might be eliminated through manipulation of factors underlying collagen production. A paucity of public knowledge about the social and economic costs of accidental injury was said to be the greatest barrier to trauma research. It was noted that trauma research would be enhanced by coordination among the various supportive agencies.
