The Waldeyer ring equivalent in the rat. A model for analysis of oronasopharyngeal immune responses.

Abstract

By means of serial sectioning of the head and neck a paired, rod shaped, parachoanic lymphoid organ was identified in Lewis rats. Histological, ultrastructural studies and FACS analysis showed this organ to be a lympho-epithelial organ with high endothelial venules (HEV) and a preponderance of B over T and T helper over T suppressor cells.
