It has long been considered that changes occurring in the body due to aging are irreversible. If such were a clearly established fact, the field of geriatric medicine would be greatly limited.
Since the retrogressive changes in the female reproductive tract fall into a special category and are the changes brought about by exhaustion of ovarian function, these tissues in old individuals from 60 to 95 years of age and long after the menopause were chosen for observation as to revitalization of older tissue and to test the theory of whether changes in older tissue are reversible or not.
