Dr. Yoffey attempts to summarize the main trends of his work, on lymphocytes principally, extending over several years. He approaches his subject by discussing what he designates as the "lymphocyte complex," which has been estimated to constitute somewhere between one-half to one per cent of the body weight of rats. Other phases discussed are the measurement of the production of lymphocytes, the effect of recirculation of lymphocytes in their various channels, the relation of lymphoid tissue to antibody formation, the role of the lymphocyte in hemopoiesis, and the occurrence of lymphocytes in the bone marrow.
