Normal human or rat serum administered by intraventricular injection induced demonstrable changes in the rat CNS myelin as seen from an increased recovery of dissociated myelin (DM), i.e. a myelin-related low density membrane fragments, from the tissue homogenates. The yield of DM reached a maximum on the third postinjection day and returned to the control level by day 5. In spite of the increased recovery of DM, no physico-chemical alternations in myelin isolates and no histological abnormalities in the tissue could be detected. The production of DM seems to be a sensitive index of serum-induced alteration of the myelin sheath.
