Dogs injected with proteose recovered from the intestinal contents of animals with obstruction at different levels show no significant changes in the blood chlorides even with a fatal intoxication.

Autolyzing liver in the abdominal cavity produces no change in the blood chlorides even with a very great increase in the urea and nonprotein nitrogen.

Proteose intoxication is probably not a factor in the characteristic fall in chlorides seen after intestinal and pyloric obstruction.
