The blood of 42 persons, of whom 26 were suffering from senile cataract, 12 from other ocular diseases, and 4 were healthy, has been examined and glutathion, hæmoglobin and red cell count determined in most of the cases and the quotients, GSH/r.b.c. and GSH. Hb./r.b.c. calculated. The variations in values are within the observed limits for normal healthy individuals. One of us (T. P. R.) desires to record here his thanks to the University of Mysore for the grant of a research scholarship.
