In a sequence of lectures brought to the Royal collage of Phy sicians in London in 1846, Dr. H. Bence Jones defined experiences on a urine pattern despatched to him with the subsequent notice: "Dear Dr. Jones-The tube comprises urine of very excessive particular gravity. whilst boiled it turns into somewhat opaque . . . . and so forth. " Dr. Jones stumbled on that heating of the urine after addition of nitric acid ended in formation of a heavy precipitate; acid advert dition could have been required to deliver the urine to pH 4-6 at which Bence Jones proteins usually tend to precipitate while heated. This urinary pre cipitate was once linked to a bone affliction termed "mollities ossium. " [H. Bence Jones, Papers on Chemical Pathology, Lecture III. Lancet 2, 269-274 (1847)].
