Fluorimetric Determination of 'Antrycide'


DURING trials of the new trypanocidal drug 'Antrycide' (Curd and Davey1) it became necessary to develop a method of determining it in plasma. This brief description of the method is published in the hope that it may be useful to other workers who use the drug.
