Abstract

Administration of 0.865 M sodium chloride, 0.1 ml, into the lateral ventricle of anesthetized dogs increased the drainage of lymph from the thoracic and jugular lymph vessels, increased blood plasma volume, and decreased the total protein content in the lymph, blood plasma and interstitial fluid. Within first minutes after the administration the ratio of protein fractions in blood plasma and lymph was altered and the osmotic blood and lymph pressure decreased. The data obtained indicate the reflex elimination of osmotic shifts in the C. S. F.
