The purpose of the present communication is to show that the course of the specific dynamic action of protein parallels the course of nitrogen excretion; and in the well-nourished animal is the result of at least two processes, of which one is the work imposed upon the kidney, and the other is what may be called the "specific dynamic action proper," due to the metabolism other than excretion of the nitrogen, and of the carbon.
