Goblet cells were counted in many localities and the results analysed statistically. The density proved very low, but uniform in the entire Eustachian tube, 10 cells per field, corresponding to 565 cells per mm2. These findings were compared with those from a normal adult autopsy material in which the density in the pharyngeal orifice was high, but gradually decreased towards the tympanic orifice where it was as low as in prematures. It is concluded that a marked postnatal increase in the density in the tubal orifice is abnormal, whereas a physiological increase in density may be expected in the pharyngeal part of the tube.

One premature, intubated for three days, exhibited a very high density in the Eustachian tube, presumably as a consequence of sudden tubal occlusion. The hypertrophic stage of development of the rat mandibular condyle was investigated in 16 and 26-day-old rats by electron microscopy. It was observed that capillaries invaded the lower level of the hypertrophic zone, without any previous chondroclastic resorption of calcified partitions. The partitions surrounding the hypertrophic chondrocytes were not mineralized around their entire circumference at the level of capillary penetration. The capillaries were accompanied by perivascular cells but these showed no similarities to chondroclasts. Multinucleated chondro- or osteoclasts were however present at a lower level of the subchondral area.

It is suggested that there are no inherent differences with respect to the pattern of mineralization and erosion between the epiphyseal growth plate and the developing mandibular condyle. A method is described for estimating the number of nuclei of different cell types in the sheep placenta. These changes correlate with a decrease in volume of the core of the placental villi and increase in umbilical blood flow. Incorporation of Fe55 in vivo was used for verifying on radioautographs the identity of chicken bone marrow cells that are in the process of hemesyntheses.

The method was applied to the study of six placentas of different ages and the results have been correlated with data on the chemical composition and the physiology of the ovine placenta. In agreement with studies of placental DNA content, there is no demonstrable increase in the total number of placental nuclei in the last two months of gestation. However, the number of fetal mesenchymal nuclei decreases and there is a concomitant increase of fetal endothelial nuclei from 80 days to term. Under the experimental conditions all labeled cells may be considered to be linked with erythroid differentiation. They were classified into five maturational stages according to their morphology and capacity for DNA synthesis. Granulocytes were identified by the presence of specific granules.

All mononuclear cells were classified as lymphocytes which had a pachychromatic nucleus, a high nucleocytoplasmic ratio, lacked the capacity for DNA synthesis, and resembled small lymphocytes of the bursa, spleen and bone marrow that bound, in vitro, anti-chicken gamma globulins labeled with I125. Radioautography with H3TdR was used to identify proliferating and non-proliferating members of each cell population. Microridges (MR), also called microvillar ridges, microplicae and cytoplasmic folds, have been noted on many epithelial surfaces.

In the present study we examine the mechanical role that microridges may play in holding mucus to the lumenal surface to the esophagus in the trout Salmo gairdneri. Our findings support the hypothesis that the microridges help hold a protective coat of mucus to the epithelium. In addition, the complex curved or whorled arrangement of microridges appears to facilitate the spread of mucus away from goblet cells.

Twenty-four patients with severe, 24 with moderate, and 24 without heart disease were selected for measurements of systolic time intervals (STI) and blood pressure before and during anesthesia. In all patients anesthesia was induced with thiopental, 4 mg/kg. After tracheal intubation, 12 patients from each heart-disease class received halothane-N2O-O2 (halothane) and 12 patients from each class morphine-d-tubocurarine-N2O-O2 (MS-dTc).

Thiopental increased the pre-ejection period (PEP), decreased left ventricular ejection time (LVET), and accelerated heart rate (HR). These changes were similar in patients with and without heart disease. Halothane and and MS-dTc lowered systolic blood pressure and increased PEP/LVET. With halothane but not with MS-dTc these changes were more pronounced in patients who had heart disease.

Changes of the PEP/LVET ratio during halothane anesthesia were a better discriminating variable among patients without, with moderate, and with severe heart disease than were changes in systolic blood pressure. Lumbar epidural anesthesia was administered to 12 normotensive pregnant ewes.
