Author examined by electrophoretic method the serum protein of 59 patients with tuberculous bones and joints and 19 patients with back pain. The results obtained were as follows:
1. The levels of total protein in sera increased usually in the series of the patients with tuberculous bones and joints, especially in those who were complicated with abscess, sinus and pulmonary and renal tuberculosis.
2. As to the components of sera, it was measured to decrease albumin and to increase total globulin.
3. Analysis of each component of globulin showed the increased α- and γ-globulin, remaining β-globulin constantly.
4. The changes of levels of total protein in sera and their components didn't relate to the sites of lesions, but to the complications, and became evident over the value of 20mm of sedimentation rate.
