Abstract

By the titration method of estimating amino acids, ferments capable of splitting protein from carcinomatous tissue are demonstrable in the blood serum of patients with carcinoma. The power of the blood serum of carcinomatous patients to split carcinomatous protein does not differ from the normal with the same constancy and to the same degree when estimated by amino acid titration as indicated by the results obtained with the dialysis method of Abderhalden. Serum capable of splitting protein from carcinoma of the uterus was also capable of splitting protein from carcinoma of the breast, but not mixtures of gelatin and Witte's peptone. The complement content of the blood serum of a carcinoma patient is as a rule higher than normal.
