1. It proved possible to correct dietary hypoalbuminemia in dogs by large plasma transfusions (about 50 cc. per kilo per day). After 1 week of injections the increase of plasma protein exceeded the normal level although but 10 to 13 per cent of the injected protein remained in the blood. There was an associated increase in plasma volume and a marked diuresis. During the following 2 weeks the plasma volume and protein returned to their previous low levels. 2. The nitrogen introduced was retained… Expand

ALTERATIONS IN ALBUMIN METABOLISM AFTER SERUM AND ALBUMIN INFUSIONS.
TLDR
Although there is an increase in protein degradation associated with at least a temporary storage of protein, observations on the changes in endogenous protein synthesis and degradation that might follow such infusions are not available. Expand

TLDR
It is stated the belief that hypoproteinemia may produce so striking an effect on the gastrointestinal tract that severe mechanical defects may be caused. Expand

THE DETERMINATION OF THE NITROGEN BALANCE INDEX IN NORMAL AND HYPOPROTEINEMIC DOGS
Food protein nitrogen, entering into the dynamic equilibrium of the body, develops a characteristic nitrogen balance, reflecting the retention of nitrogen by the body. Recognizing the fundamentalExpand
Ontogeny and differentiation of murine natural killer cells and their receptors.
TLDR
Cellular immunology was actively investigated during the 1960s, stimulated in large part by the development of plaque assays for antibody-forming cells and the assay for cytotoxic cells, which revealed that M cells are identical to natural killer (NK) cells. Expand

NUTRITIONAL EDEMA IN THE DOG I. DEVELOPMENT OF HYPOPROTEINEMIA ON A DIET DEFICIENT IN PROTEIN
TLDR
The data permit one to entertain the hope that a way will be found for stimulating an internal readjustment to provide temporary relief from hypoproteinemia, a way which will depend upon the potential ability of the tissues to provide sufficient protein for the needs of the plasma. Expand
BLOOD PLASMA PROTEIN GIVEN BY VEIN UTILIZED IN BODY METABOLISM
TLDR
Plasma protein fed by mouth under identical conditions shows the same general reaction as noted with plasma by vein but the urinary nitrogen is a little higher and suggests that the injected protein is utilized a little more completely to form new protein. Expand
