To the Editor:—
I have read with great interest the editorial on the pineal body (The Journal, Nov. 24, 1934, p. 1626). My investigations (Zentralbl. f. Gynäk. 57:634 [March 18] 1933) have shown that my extract of the pineal body has an antiestrogenic effect, disturbs the estrous cycle, inhibits the development of weight in infantile mice, and has a therapeutic effect in certain genital bleedings, particularly cases of juvenile bleedings.
