From our observations, the best method of estimating the level of dextran in the blood is by observing its renal excretion in the presence of a constant input and adequate hydration. An abnormally high blood level may result from inadequate excretion and may promote pulmonary edema. Furthermore, impaired renal perfusion with normal renal function may result in a high concentration of the urine which probably produces reversible hydropic changes in the renal tubules. Rigid monitoring of urine volume and specific gravity is mandatory in the utilization of low molecular dextran.

    A number of arboviruses multiply in avian cells in tissue culture but fail to produce plaques in them when grown under an agar overlay. It has been shown that the addition of optimal amounts of DEAE dextran or of protamlne enables some such viruses to form clear-cut plaques to a high titre. The...
