Abstract

Two years ago it seemed desirable and possible to undertake a fairly comprehensive study of the action of various anterior lobe hormones on basal heat production. Such a study obviously required two quite distinct lines of investigation. First, the assay of all preparations for their content of some or all of the various pituitary hormones. Second, the determination in normal, hypophysectomized and thyroidectomized animals of the action of these attested preparations on the rate of heat production. This laboratory was then in favorable position to undertake this bi-partite study.
