In studying the effect of vitamin D upon the calcium equilibrium of the human body infected with tubercle bacilli, normal chemical relationships are prerequisite. A normal blood calcium and phosphorus is interwoven in the physico-chemical complex of a normal acid-base balance. One of the factors representing this balance is the H-ion concentration of the blood. That H-ion concentrations within normal limits exist during the clinical course of many diseases is obvious, otherwise they would present to us an accompanying state of acidosis or alkalosis. Although bio-chemical tests other than pH give us a wider range of analysis and interpretation, yet
