We have previously studied the process of calcification in bioprosthetic porcine heart valves crosslinked with glutaraldehyde. Observations using light microscopy had indicated that calcification of elastic fibers occurs in implanted heart valves, in addition to calcification associated with collagen fibers. To determine the contribution of elastin to the(More)
Adult cotton top marmosets made niacin deficient by long-term dietary deprivation, developed a syndrome characterized by anorexia, weight loss, weakness, diarrhea, dermatitis, enterocolitis and stomatitis. The stomatitis was highlighted by a necrotizing gingivitis and periodontitis and by an ulcerative and atrophic glossitis.
Noncarious teeth obtained from individuals 15 to 50 years of age were used to study the lymphatic drainage of the human pulp. Thick sections (50 to 150 microns) were stained with iron hematoxylin for the demonstration of lymph and blood vessels. Lymph capillaries originated as blind sacs in the odontoblastic layer and in the pulp proper near the(More)
