While developing a microbiological assay system for pyridoxine, Snell noticed that the content of ‘pyridoxine’ in rat tissues as determined by growth of Streptococcus faecalis was several thousand times higher than those obtained by yeast growth, rat growth or colorimetric methods. Another important finding was that when media supplemented with pyridoxine was heat-sterilized, progressively smaller amounts of pyridoxine were required by S. faecalis as the autoclave period was increased. Snell proposed that a substance, which he called ‘pseudopyridoxine’, was formed from pyridoxine by autoclaving and that S.

Although he never thought that citrus juice is the only solution to scurvy, the surgeons of the Royal Navy were by experience convinced of the efficacy of citrus juice even if the reason was unknown. In the early 1880s, the Surgeon General of the Imperial Japanese Navy, Kanehiro Takagi, noticed that beriberi was common among crews and lower rank officers but not among officers who ate a Westernstyle diet. He considered that the low-protein diet was the cause of beriberi and performed an experiment in 1884 in which crews of a battleship were given bread and meat during a nine-month mission.
