Morphometric examination using light, scanning electron, and transmission electron microscopy was performed on the lungs from 32 inbred male BALB/ cNNia mice between 38 days and 28 months of age. Between 38 days and 9 months of age the changes were primarily those of growth. Alveolar multiplication and total elastic-fiber length appeared complete by 38 days of age. The major increase in the number of interalveolar pores occurred by 68 days, but there was a significant further increase from 68… CONTINUE READING
