Abstract:

A number of investigations of metabolism in artificially fed infants during vaccine fever, measles, or chickenpox fever, have yielded the results that, in addition to quite definite quantitative changes in nitrogen metabolism, qualitative changes also take place. In this study, the acid-base ratio was examined continuously in three infants with vaccine fever, and in two infants during the course of an infection with measles. Estimations included total nitrogen, ammonia nitrogen, phosphoric acid, excess acid, and titratable acidity of urine, hydrogen ion concentration of urine and tissue fluids, and in one test also the carbon dioxide tension of the blood.
