- n. A salt of uric acid of which the constitution may be represented by the general formula MH(C5H2N4O3).H2(C5H2-N4O3),M standing for a monad metal, such as potassium or sodium. It has been shown by Hence Jones and Sir William Roberts that such salts exist normally in the urine and form practically the whole of the solid matter in the urine of birds and reptiles. Sir William Roberts considers that all or nearly all the morbid phenomena in the body which are referable to uric acid depend upon secondary changes in the quadriurates.
