I had expected to speak in relation to epilepsy and endocrine disease, but the work along this line has not reached a stage where it is suitable to report it. I will, therefore, limit my remarks to three subjects: First, the effect of fasting and the ketogenic diet upon the course of epilepsy; sceond, the effect of the fasting and ketogenic diet upon the acid base equilibrium, and, third, I will tabulate the results of therapy as I have outlined it, with the old attempt to offer a tentative new classification of this condition.
Work was begun by us on
