This book contains a series of papers dealing with metabolic interrelations given at a conference sponsored by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation. This conference was attended by twenty-five guests who specialize in metabolic studies. The number of participants is limited to permit informal discussions on various problems, and suggestions for additional research or possible solutions of the problems are offered.

The volume consists of nineteen papers given by men who are working on some phase of metabolism. Most of the papers have a section devoted to discussion in which the participating members offer suggestions or ask pertinent questions. The papers given at this conference generally deal with a specific phase of a problem, and therefore many experimental data are included. Six papers are devoted to problems in the field of hormones; five articles deal with various phases of calcification, and three are concerned with tracer studies in excretion and distribution
