T HE PHYSIOLOGIC function of vitamin B12 is as yet far from being fully understood. Experimental difficulties arising from the lack of a procedure to insure the development of a pure vitamin B12 deficiency in animals and from the multiplicity of physiologic functions of vitamin B12 tend to impede progress. Mere feeding of test animals on a vitamin B12-free diet does not necessarily result in a development of vitamin B12 deficiency, because of the common practice of coprophagy which must be…
