TitlePaper, 'Note on a new constituent of blood serum' by L C [Leonard Charles] Wooldridge
CreatorWooldridge; Leonard Charles (fl 1883-1889)
DescriptionWooldridge writes: 'I wish in the present note to draw attention to a proteid substance which exists in very small quantity in blood serum. Owing to the difficulty of obtaining a sufficient amount, I shall not attempt to give a complete description of its chemical characters, but shall confine myself chiefly to its physiological properties which, I venture to suggest, possess considerable interest.'
