In the recent gasometric micro method for the determination of lactic acid in blood devised by Avery and Hastings which measures the carbon dioxide evolved upon oxidation with permanganate, these investigators obtained more carbon dioxide than could be accounted for by the lactic acid known to be present. No other likely constituents of their blood filtrate yielded carbon dioxide and the source of this extra carbon dioxide was not explained.
