As there is already experimental and clinical evidence that significant changes in the blood sugar occur in various infections it was thought to be worth while to discover whether changes in blood phosphorus are associated with the bacterial hyperglycemias and hypoglycemias. Suspensions of Bact. aertrycke and bacterial filtrates were injected intravenously into rabbits and blood sugar and phosphorus determinations made at frequent intervals. It was found that a hyperglycemia was first produced and that this was followed by hypoglycemia. When death occurred, it was in the hypoglycemic phase. Inorganic blood phosphorus was lessened in amount during hyperglycemia and increased again,
