This little book contains six papers presented at the eleventh annual conference on protein metabolism of the Bureau of Biological Research at Rutgers University. There is a foreword by Cole and introductory remarks by Leslie A. Stauber calling attention to the growing interest in problems of the interactions of hosts and parasites, and of their mutual physiological modifications.

In the first paper William Trager discusses “Studies on the Cultivation of Malaria Parasites.” It has been possible to support development of extracellularly for several days and to study some of its nutritional requirements independent of the host. In the second paper James W. Moulder discusses “The Protein Metabolism of Intracellular Parasites,” and compares the metabolism of bacteriophages, rickettsias and malaria parasites, with special reference to the relative metabolic contributions of host and parasite.
