Abstract

Amyloidosis was induced by casein injections in mice allocated to glucose, purina and casein dietary regimens. Amyloid was not found in the glucose fed mice. By contrast, amyloid was present in the spleen of purina fed animals and in the spleen, liver and kidney of those fed casein. It seems therefore that adequate protein intake is essential for the consummation of an amyloidogenic stimulus.
