SummaryEffusions from knee joints of rheumatoid arthritic patients were studied before and after intra-articular application of hydrocortisone.In more severe cases the intrinsic viscosity was abnormally low and the potassium level was high. In many large effusions the sodium concentration was increased. The treatment caused a decrease in the sodium and potassium levels, but none in the chloride levels. The water-binding capacity was decreased. The low intrinsic viscosity was markedly augmented… Expand

Effect of hyaluronidase on electrolytes (sodium and potassium) of dog synovial fluid.
Conclusions(1) The action of hyaluroni-dase increases the concentrations of both sodium and potassium in the synovial fluid of the dog. (2) Inactivated hyaluronidase has no action on the sodium andExpand

The chromatographic identification of some biologically important phosphate esters.
The objective of the present work was to provide a means for separating and indentifying phosphate esters involved in glycolysis in higher plants using two-dimensional chromatography with successive development in an acid and in a basic solvent. Expand
