Abstract

The free amino acid content of horse perilymph, cerebrospinal fluid, and blood serum was comparatively studied. The results obtained show clear-cut differences between the three fluids, and suggest that perilymph may be considered as a biological fluid with its own specific characteristics, probably correlated to the metabolism of its secreting structure.
