1. The rates of dialysis of Lactobacillus bifidus factors have been measured under standard conditions for various samples of human milk and human colostrum. For comparison glucose, lactose, and melezitose have also been used. The latter dialyze more rapidly than the bifidusactive factors. 2. The blood group of the donor (A, B, O) seems to have little effect on the rate at which the activity dialyzes. 3. The initial activity of the samples decreases with the length of time after delivery. However, the distribution after dialysis for 72 hr. remains relatively constant. 4. For human colostrum, the dialysis is slower and less complete than for human milk collected 3–49 weeks after delivery.
