Summary

In vitamin K deficient chicken the serum complement (C′) level is significantly decreased, as compared with normal animals, due to a lower level of its component C′1. Administration of vitamin K1 for three days did not restore its titer although the prolonged blood clotting time became normal. The results thus indicate a considerably slower resynthesis of the complement factor C′1 than of prothrombin.
