The conclusions of this investigation are summarized as follows: Single radiations from a quart mercury arc, in doses from 12 to 48 lithopone units of ultraviolet energy, produce no change in the erythrocyte count in normal rabbits. Successive daily doses of 12 L. U. for eight days had no effect on the red count during the radiation period. After radiation was discontinued there was a slight rise which lasted for about a fortnight. The platelet count was increased by single doses of radiation, the rise varying directly with the amount of ultraviolet energy given. Successive daily doses increased the amount
