dc.description.abstractFor the last two years I have been engaged in work upon the products of the decomposition of blood pigments by means of reducing agents with the view of elucidating the changes undergone by blood pigment within the animal organism.en
dc.description.abstractThe following Thesis on this subject is divided into three parts. The first of these consists of a brief introductory sketch of what is known with regard to the kataboiism of blood pigment. An historical review of the results obtained by the action of reducing agents upon haematin forms the second part; while the third part contains an account of the results which I have obtained from work on the action of reducing agents upon haematin.en
dc.description.abstractThree different methods of investigation may be adopted for the study of the kataboiism of blood pigment. One may either investigate the changes which the pigment undergoes in localised extravasations of blood, or one may study the products of its decomposition which are found, in the excreta under both normal and pathological conditions, or finally one may combine with the latter method the investigation of the effects of experimental interference with the functions I functions of the organs believed to be concerned in the breaking down of blood pigment with the view of ascertaining not only the sites of formation of the various pigment derivatives: but also the nature of the chemical changes to which they owe their origin.en
