THE communication from Drs. Caputto and Trucco1 on “A New Galactose-containing Compound from Mammary Gland” interests us because our own work on lactose synthesis did at one stage give results, very similar to those they now report. The interpretation we put upon our results, however, was different from that which they derive from theirs; further, the tentative conclusions we are now tempted to draw from some of our more recent work are also in conflict with the views expressed in their letter.
