Page 19 - The trichina?, according to his observations, arrive in the muscular tissue with the blood. The diameter of the smallest capillaries in the muscles is much less than the diameter of the young trichinae, so they are certain to be arrested.

Page 19 - ... at once in the interstitial spaces between the muscular fibers. Many trichinae unquestionably never enter the sarcolemma. and become encysted, but when they do the fibers become permanently destroyed. At the end of the third week after immigration, the inflammatory irritation of the muscular fiber has reached its highest point, the trichina is nearly full grown, and becomes fixed to the spot where it is to be encapsuled. Several of these worms may wander in the same track, and ultimately be enclosed...
Page 181 - ... only, it is incredible that men should fail to ask what the use of this relic of the old system may be. Donkeys in Ireland are unshod, and they work on roads at least as rough, hard, slimy, and slippery as those of England. "Can one really believe...
