Serial bone marrow aspirates were taken from a single site in each of nine individuals. The colony forming capacity of these samples, measured by culturing the cells in semi-solid agar in diffusion chambers, fell as the aspirate volume increased. Comparison of the results from different individuals showed that this effect was consistent within the group and… CONTINUE READING
