During the past few years a considerable amount of investigation has been devoted to the part played by copper in hemoglobin formation. Hart, Steenbock, Waddell, and Elvehjem were the first to show that in nutritional anemia regeneration of hemoglobin does not occur when pure iron salts are administered, but if a small amount of copper as copper sulphate be added along with the iron salt regeneration is very rapid.
