This is a preliminary note on an attempt to develop a technique for estimating the bone marrow cellularity in man. At present there is no means of making such an estimate, and discussions of the probably mitotic interval and bone marrow life span of the different stages of erythrocyte precursors are based on calculations of the known average red cell life, the total numbers of red cells and reticulocytes in the peripheral blood, and the relative numbers and mitotic indices of the different erythrocyte precursors.
