With the availability of the method of analysis of serum protein using minute amounts of material, it was felt desirable to understand the protein metabolism and physiologic function in the body. The present study was undertaken to clarify the serum albumin, globulin and total protein at term to demonstrate the normal concentration and correlation between the 30 mother and newborn infant pairs. Serum albumin, globulin and total protein were determined by the Biuret method with pooled human serum. The A/G ration was calculated by formula of A/G. The following result were obstained. 1) In comparing the newborn infants of nonanemic mothers a albumin and total protein concentrations were higher and globlin concentrations decreased in the anemic mothers. 2) In comparing the nonanemic mothers and anemic mothers the mean albumin concentrations were nearly equal but globulin and total protein were slightly increased in the nonanemic mothers. 3) The mean serum albumin(of maternal and umbilical cord blood) was 3. 8+/-0. 35 gm/100 ml and 3. 8+/-0. 49 gm/100 ml respectively. 4) The mean serum globulin of mate. nal and umbilical cord blood was 2. 7+/-0. 41 gm/100 ml and 2. 32+/-0. 47 gm/100 ml respectively. The correlation of the globulin status between mot-hers and their newborn infants was not significant(r=0. 32). 5) The m-an serum total protein of maternal and umbilical cord blood was 6. 59+/-0. 59 gm/100 ml and 6. 02+/-0.57gm/100ml respectively.
