Some factors influencing the lipase content of the blood
Metadata[+] Show full item record
From the review of the literature of the lipase content of the blood it appears that no consistent series of determinations have been made through a period of time sufficient to learn under just what conditions the variation in the total lipase of the blood occurs. The literature also shows disagreement as to the amount of blood and fat present during different conditions of nutrition. Although the fat content has been studied in the blood in relation to feeding and to fat transfusion, still no study has been made on both the lipase and the fat contents in one and the same series of animals. This study will throw light on the general problem of fat mobilization and fat metabolism. In this investigation, the object has been to determine the lipase and fat contents of the blood and their relation to each other under different nutritional conditions.
