Studies of 6th and 11th rib samples taken at autopsy from 22 adults who had been seriously ill before death were compared, and it is provisionally concluded that the average number of bone forming and resorbing centers in a Unit amount of compacta are similar in each sampling site. More material on this continuing study of bone dynamics is scheduled for future issue of the MEDICAL JOURNAL.
