Experiments on 25 dogs showed that burns are accompanied by a regular redistribution of plasma proteins between the body fluids and by increased lymphatic resorption. Retention of properdin, albumins, and α globulins in the tissues during burns was demonstrated indirectly. The degree of burning was found to depend on the initial properdin level.
