This bulletin presents a brief survey of the problem of nitrate poisoning, incorporating some of the experimental evidence secured at this laboratory and borrowing liberally of the data obtained by other investigators, so as to make possible a more complete report. It is by no means a comprehensive review of the field, but it is thought that the literature cited (and the references therein) provides an adequate cross-reference on the subject. The pharmacologic aspects of nitrate and nitrite, for example-studies on many of the nitro esters, have been intentionally omitted from this discussion.
