Studies on the character and staining of fibrin
It is fashionable still to call this material 'fibrinoid' but the new methods for demonstrating fibrin described below all give a sharp, contrasty snining reaction with this material, a finding which encourages us to abjure this melodious but misleading term.

The effect of advanced old age on the neurone content of the cerebral cortex Observations with an automatic image analyser point counting method
The effect of advanced old age on the nerve cell content of the cerebral cortex was examined in 19 non-demented persons aged 69-95 years, using a Quantimet 720 image analysing computer to make area
Quantitation of human milk fat globule (HMFG1) expression in breast carcinoma and its association with survival.
The total absence of staining with HMFG1 was possibly associated with a favourable outcome, although this did not quite achieve significance with the small numbers involved, and the Quantimet 970 was found to produce better resolution and to eliminate subjective error.
Renal hyalin
An aging process in amyloid can now be envisaged resembling the aging of extraluminal fibrin, and a hyalin material that, staining like collagen, merits the name pseudo-collagen is applied.
Measurement by Quantimet 720 of the proportion of actively growing cells in tissue cultures of human lymphocytes
The size‐distribution of normal human lymphocytes growing in tissue culture was measured with a Quantimet 720 image‐analysing computer. The proportion of cells undergoing volumetric growth after
Silver impregnation of reticulin.
Cytological basis of histological typing of diffuse Hodgkin's disease. Demonstration of an implied misnomer in the terminology of the Rye classification.
A hypothesis is proposed that could explain the natural history of the different subtypes of diffuse Hodgkin's disease as the resultant of three processes: (a) tumour aggressiveness, (b) specific cell-mediated immunological reactions, and (c) non-immunological stromal responses.
Measurement of the mass of syncytiotrophoblast in a range of human placentae using an image analysing computer.
Strong evidence was found that a linear relationship exists between syncytiotrophoblast mass and gestation period and that on average pre-eclampsia placentae have a lower percentage and a reduced mass of syncytic mass.
