Abstract
Goldfish were injected intraperitoneally through the cloaca with serum from patients. Exophthalmos-producing reaction was usually in serum from patients with exophthalmos. Five patients whose serum produced this substance responded to roentgen radiation of the pituitary region. Two whose serum did not produce the substance and reaction in fish failed to respond to radiation.
