Abstract or Summary
  • The golden hamster is a relatively new animal in the experimental field. Its principle use has been in the study of virus diseases and more recently in poliomyelitis. In addition, the hamster appeared to possess desirable features for nutritional studies. Research was therefore begun in this laboratory on nutrition of the animal. The experimental work was divided into two portions: first, to establish a simplified diet satisfactory for the maintenance of stock colonies of banisters; second, to establish the thiamin requirement and to outline a thiamin assay method using the hamster. It appeared that vigorous healthy animals could be raised on simplified diets containing 71% cornmeal, 15% linseed meal, 10% powdered skim milk, 2% alfalfa meal, 1% dehydrated liver and 1% inorganic salts. High losses of young which occurred during lactation may be reduced slightly by the observance of unusual quiet and seclusion of the females. The hamster appeared to require more than one microgram of thiamin per gram of basal ration. Two methods of thiamin assay using the hamster have been suggested. They are (1) a growth method and (2) a curative method.
