To the Editor:
—In the editorial entitled "New Blood Constituents" (The Journal, May 7, p. 1484), there appears a sentence from which it might be inferred that glutathione was found in blood for the first time by Brand and Sandberg. Glutathione in blood and its unquestionable identity with glutathione from other sources was first established by H. F. Holden working in the laboratory of Sir F. G. Hopkins at Cambridge (Holden, H. F.: Biochem. J.19:727, 1925).
