I performed an experiment on the relationship between 14C-Bleomycin and Glutathione in 'vivo; especially on the relationship of radioactivity and antibacterial activity, and the results will be reported here. 1) When Bleomycin and Glutathione were administered simultaneously and animals were killed after 30 minutes, decrease in Bleomycin concentration in every organ was observed. The decrease rate in tumor was especially great (radioactivity: 80.3%, antibacterial activity: 78.4%). 2) When

EXPERIMENTAL METHOD Experimental method is the same as that reported in the 4th report, namely, 0.1 mlof EB~eB
