Experimental Biology


The author conducted a comparative histochemical study of different types of macrophages appearing in normal and experimental conditions. Substances of polysaccharide and lipoidal origin formed in the macrophages as a result of the transformation of phagocytized material (including microbes) may be present in the macro-phages, differeing in genesis and function. These substances may be and are to be differentiated from each other and from the polysaccharides of the cytoplasm proper of the macrophages.
