In a preliminary report, Struck and Visscher1 noted an inverse relation between the ages of two groups of rats and the mean concentration of total acid soluble phosphorus in muscle. Since these two groups were not of homogeneous origin, the work was repeated and extended. A part of the results were embodied in a preliminary report by Bartoli, Cohen and Struck,2 confirming the earlier findings.
A survey of the literature on the general subject of chemical changes with aging shows a badly confused state of knowledge.
The fact that the concentration of acid soluble phosphorus of human serum decreases under
