Experimental evidence agrees that rats are able to synthesize Vitamin C, whereas human beings are not (32). The question then arises, "do the adrenal glands play any significant role in the production of Vitamin C in the rat," if so, "to what extent would the deposition of ascorbic acid be changed in various body tissue when the glands are removed"? With the forestated thought in mind, this report is designed to describe: 1. the physiological and morphological changes following adrenalectomy. 2. the physiological, morphological and biochemical changes following the administration of the adreno-steroids and ACTH. 3. the deposition of ascorbic acid in various body tissues in the adrenalectomized rat following the injection of adreno-steroids and ACTH. 4. the most effective variation of the adreno-steroids and ACTH upon ascorbic acid deposition.
