    ABSTRACT: The osmolality of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in normal conditions was evaluated through the results in 22 CSF samples obtained from patients with any evidence of central nervous system diseases as well with any disease that might interfer with general metabolic conditions. For comparative purposes it was studied the serum osmolality in a series of 22 healthy people. The osmolality was evaluated by the Fiske's osmometer. Results are presented in table 1 (CSF), table 2 (blood sera) and their estimatives are grouped in table 3. The results reported confirm that there are any significative differences between the values of CSF and of blood serum osmolality in normal conditions.

    ABSTRACT: The possibility of rhythmicity in the intestinal absorption of lipids was explored by assessing the absorption of vitamin K-1 by the unanesthetized rat at 6pm, 12 and 6am, and 12pm. A marked variability in the absorption rate of vitamin K-1 was found throughout the 18-hr period. The highest rates of absorption occurred at midnight (139.8.22 and 134.49.1 pmol/min/10 cm of jejunum and ileum, respectively). The lowest rates of absorption occurred at 6am (54.51 and 81.47.4 pmol/min/10 cm of jejunum and ilenum, respectively). Absorption rates at noon were not different from absorption at 6am but an initial increase in absorption was noted at 6pm. Synchronization of the absorptive rate with time is most likely related to the time of feeding and not to changes in the pattern of illumination. The possibility of marked diurnal variability in the absorption rate should be considered in the design and execution of intestinal absorption experiments.
