NIELSEN and Elvehjem and Martin have demonstrated the counteracting effect of folic acid concentrates on growth inhibition of rats due to succinylsulfathiazole and sulfaguanidine. These findings, indicating synthesis of folic acid by the intestinal bacteria, are in accord with the findings of Mitchell and Isbell on synthesis of this substance by rat intestinal flora.
