Referee's report by Marjory Stephenson, on a paper 'Metabolic changes which form the basis of a microbiological assay of nicotinic acid' by H McIlwain

Reference number: RR/71/192

Date: 1948

Description

Sectional Committee: Physiology and Medical Sciences

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. The reseacrh presented here is long overdue, as an investigation into the basic biochemistry underlying a commonly used laboratory method. Finds it difficult to find any redundant matter in the paper. Is not qualified to pass an opinion on the mathematics, suggests sending the paper to Cyril Norman Hinshelwood for his opinion. Criticises the use of the word 'titrable' as used instead of 'titratable'.
