This chapter examines the activities of the blood research institute in Russia under the tenure of Alexander Bogdanov as its director from 1926 until his death in April 1928. It analyzes the message of his 1927 article Izvestiia and his 1927 manifesto titled Struggle for Viability. This chapter discusses the concept of Bogdanov's tectological theory of senescence and rejuvenation which served as the theoretical foundation of his research program on blood exchanges and his vision of physiological collectivism.
