To develop a model of human thymus growth in vivo, we have implanted postnatal human thymus under the renal capsule of severe combined immune deficient (SCID) mice and assayed for graft survival and graft characteristics 1-3 mo after engraftment. Three groups of SCID mice were engrafted with postnatal human thymus: untreated SCID mice, SCID mice pretreated(More)
Four captive groups of common marmosets (Callithrix jacchus) and three groups of cotton-top tamarins (Saguinus oedipus) were each presented with a desired food and their consumption was monitored. Inequalities in consumption between individuals were found for each group of each species. Generally, adult females consumed most of the desired food, followed by(More)
The consequences of adventitious infectious agents upon the interpretation of toxicology studies performed in rats and mice are incompletely understood. Several prevalent murine pathogens cause alterations of the respiratory system that can confuse the assessment of chemically induced airway injury. In some instances the pathogenesis of infection with these(More)
In a large tamarin and marmoset experimental colony, 526 animals were examined by biomicroscopy and ophthalmoscopy for the presence of ocular disease. In 109 animals, there were 147 abnormalities involving the eyelids, cornea, iris, lens, retina or optic nerve. Most abnormalities were unimportant in terms of ocular function, but a few did cause loss of(More)
