This brief monograph by V. I. Glod, working in the First Moscow Medical Institute, has to do with the effect of splenectomy in dogs and in cats on the development of cholesteremia and phosphatemia. The author had established in his experiments that both cholesteremia and phosphatemia following the removal of the spleen have their origin in the brain. Hypercholesteremia and phosphatemia observed in splenectomized animals for twenty-one months exhibited an alternating character, periods of increase of cholesterol and phosphorus blood levels being accompanied by a corresponding increase in these substances in the blood of the efferent vessels of the brain, and the reverse.
