Page 527 - epithelial cells. The island is represented by a sharply circumscribed, hyaline structure, composed of particles of homogeneous material, giving the impression of broken, twisted columns, between which are the capillary walls.

Page 625 - 3 is a useful procedure for clinical purposes, since it is probably true that a considerable excretion of organic acid (say 15 gm. oxybutyric or more in 24 hours) is always attended by an increased excretion of !NH 3 . As much organic acid as corresponds to 10 gm.
