To the Editor:—  In our paper we made no claim for originality in the use of a buffered solution of sodium citrate in the treatment of thrombo-angiitis obliterans, and we are glad to acknowledge that the formula for this solution was originally furnished us by Dr. Jablons. We were under the impression that this solution was familiar to every one working in the field. When our paper was prepared we were unaware of the papers on diabetic gangrene read by title by Dr. Jablons before the Williamsburg Medical Society, the Yorkville Medical Society and the Eastern Medical Society in 1921, 1922 and 1923.We differ with Dr. Jablons in the explanation of the actions of some constituents of the solution and in the evaluation of some of the factors considered in his letter. An adequate discussion of these differences, however, would require too much detail for consideration here.
