A morphological and histological study at the light and electron microscope levels shows that the thymus continues to remain active despite massive loss of cortical cells. Many changes are seen in the cortex, but the medulla is relatively unaltered. In very early pregnancy a reduction in cell death and an increase in the numbers of blast cells and mitotic figures indicate a greater activity than in virgin animals… CONTINUE READING
