In 1887 Mares1 studied the hourly excretion of uric acid and urea after rich proteid meals, and found that the uric acid excretion reaches its maximum and returns to a permanent level four or five hours before the urea reaches its maximum. Evidence has gradually accumulated to show that uric acid is an intermediary product of a group of proteids which form only a small part of the total proteid material of the
