It is a great pleasure for me to be with you and to have an opportunity to comment on the accomplishments and talents of Dr. Irvine Page, a distinguished scientist and physician.

Our increasing understanding of these diseases and the scientific contributions of Dr. Page are intimately entwined and interdependent. But I will talk about the diseases in a very general way and only touch lightly upon Dr. Page's role in their exploration.
