A concise résumé of the etiology of celiac disease is given and is followed by reports of the author's own experiments, in which he was able to induce abdominal distention, steatorrhea and osteoporosis in white rats by the injection of iodoacetate subcutaneously. Histologic sections are reproduced in which it is shown that these conditions are due to changes in the intestinal mucosa and an inability to absorb fats. He was also able to obtain similar results with adrenalectomized rats. This is an excellent piece of work and is well written.
