  • Abstract:

    Normal values have been established for the levels of activity of lactic dehydrogenase, isocitric dehydrogenase, glutamic-oxalacetic transaminase, glutamic-pyruvic transaminase, aldolase and phospho-hexose isomerase in the plasma of sheep emanating from areas in which geeldikkop and enzootic icterus are prevalent and those raised in areas where the diseases do not normally occur. Some marked differences between the two groups are apparent which support recent contentions regarding the aetiology of the two syndromes mentioned.
