Int. Med. 72: 746, 1943).The studies which provided the data presented in this paper were made in the May Institute for Medical Research, the University of Cincinnati, and the Research Foundation of the Children's Hospital, Cincinnati. These studies were performed by Dr. Waldo E. Nelson, Dr. Norton Nelson and me. Dr. Korenberg, serving in the capacity of an intern, participated in some of the clinical studies and was recognized for this work as a junior author of a report entitled "The Hepatic Glycogen Reserves in Diabetes Mellitus" (Endocrinology28:358, 1941). Subsequently, studies by E. Perry McCullough and his co-workers utilized the phlorhizin procedure as presented in the aforementioned
