It is important to note that dogs with long continued obstruction or closed intestinal loops will survive lethal doses of pure proteose with but few clinical symptoms of intoxication. Dogs recovering from a sterile pleurisy or peritonitis also show a definite resistance or tolerance to subsequent proteose injections. All this evidence strengthens the argument that a proteose intoxication is present in these various conditions. Other conditions in which inflammation and pus formation or tissue

We have made experiments with sterile pleurisy, considered as identical with pertitonitis, and with sterile abscess formation, but do not care to report our findings at this time. Infarcts, pneu¬ monia and many other conditions are interesting possi¬ bilities which are being studied.
