The author has presented his experiments on the antinarcotic and antitoxic aspects of the estrogenic substances and on the sex variation in resistance to various poisons and anesthetics. He has concluded that estrogens protect the animal against these substances to a varying degree. Much of the material should be confirmed, since there are relatively few data in the literature on this subject. The practical importance of this work is still to be demonstrated.
