The following conclusions apply to the relation of urine ingredients to each other 1 An irregular relationship prevails between nitrogen and phosphoric acid. 2 During fever the relative value of phosphoric acid is much less than in the following period. 3 Relative diminution of phosphoric acid during fever is not regular. It varies between 5.1 and 1.2 of the eliminated nitrogen. 4 Relatively the greatest amount of phosphoric acid is eliminated during the decline of fever. 5 During convalescence the amount of phosphoric acid in relation to nitrogen again diminishes. 6 The cases with short fever duration Typh. recurrens, Intermitt. show that reduction of phosphates is not caused by reduced nourishment. 7 Except for the fever period, high temperature suggests decrease and the postfebrile suggests increase in the relative value of phosphoric acid. 8 During fever there is a retention of phosphoric acid in the organism.
