Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


Rats infected with Pneumococcus were noted to have a reduction of monoaminoxi dase in the brain, liver, and lung homogenates, which progressed with the development of the infection. No significant reduction in the activity of this enzyme in the kidneys was noted. The secretion of 5-oxyindolacetic acid with the urine in pneumococcus-infected rats did not differ from that seen in the control animals.
