BACKGROUND Developmental histomorphology of the human cricoid cartilage has never been well described. Regional growth centers in the cricoid have been hypothesized, but have never been demonstrated in histological sections. OBJECTIVES To apply Mib-1 immunostaining, a monoclonal antibody directed at a nuclear proliferation marker, in human cricoids to… (More)
