Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
the Morococha Peruvians an elevated H.G.H. is necessary to produce and maintain acclimatisation, firstly in a somato- tropic role in facilitating organ hypertrophy and enhancing the release of erythropoietin, and secondly in a metabolic role to assist lactic-acid utilisation during exercise, or to engage free fatty acids as the prime energy substrate, resulting in less lactic-acid formation. This work was made possible by a G. D. Searle travelling fellowship in endocrinology from the Australian Post-Graduate Committee in Medicine.
