Since the introduction of Salvarsan by Ehrlich in the latter part of 1910 many facts have been brought out concerning its reactions in the body. The most important of these pharmacologically are the deaths which have been attributed to its untoward action. The experiments in the present work were undertaken in order to determine whether such action was due to the drug injected or to other conditions accompanying the injection.
