Abstract

1. Insulinotropic effects were obtained with a protein fraction of the anterior pituitary, with estradiol and with stilbestrol.

2. Varying diabetogenic effects were obtained with highly purified prolactin preparations, with progesterone, with testosterone and with a fraction, probably also protein, from the anterior pituitary.
