Abstract

Previous experiments by the senior writer have clearly shown that the cause of death following adrenal removal is an acid intoxication probably due to phosphoric and unknown organic acids. In the absence of the hormone of the adrenal cortex, the kidney fails to function properly with the result that marked acid and nitrogen retention occurs. In our previous work on the acid-base equilibrium the acid values of the serum protein, bicarbonate, chloride, and phosphorus were calculated. Total acid was taken as the sum of all the determined acids. Organic acid was calculated by subtracting total acid from total base and included the sulphate ion.
