Eulen einige Augen von Ratten und Meerschweinchen zu untersuchen. Sie fanden auch in diesen Augen Riboflavin. Seitdem habe ich nicht das Problem verfolgt und weiss nicht ob jetzt etwas Neues zugekommen / ist...." Translated: "Dear Mr. Temmen, Riboflavin was dicovered by Hans v. Euler and Adler 1933 in - I think - fish eyes found (...) During my period of eye activity I asked v. Eulen to examine some eyes of rats and guinea pigs. They also found riboflavin in these eyes. Since then I have not followed the problem and I do not know if something new has arrived.."
