During the past five years the problem of the etiology of pernicious anemia and other macrocytic anemias responding to liver extract has been investigated at the Thorndike Memorial Laboratory, Boston City Hospital. At various times Dr. Wilmot C. Townsend, Dr. Clark W. Heath, Dr. Maurice B. Strauss and myself have been engaged in this study. Last year, in collaboration with Dr. C. P. Rhoads of the Rockefeller Hospital, the macrocytic anemia of sprue in Puerto Rico was studied under the auspices of the Rockefeller Foundation. Recently Dr. Strauss has investigated the mechanism of the pernicious anemia of pregnancy.
