In 1896 Sch┐fer, working with George Oliver, discovered that an extract from the medulla of the adrenal gland produced an immediate elevation of blood pressure when injected into animals. The substance, adrenaline (epinephrine), was later isolated and crystallized by Jokichi Takamine in 1901. Sch┐fer also worked on pituitary extracts. He is further remembered in the field of endocrinology for his proposal that the active pancreatic substance in the islets of Langerhans should be called `insuline', some eight years before its discovery by Frederick Banting and Charles Best. Schafer was also the man who discovered the resuscitation technique "artificial respiration" (Schafer's Method).
