In autografts of thymus enclosed in porous cellulose membranes, the epithelium grows out in the shape of nodules, compact sheets, cords, and scattered isolated islands. During the experimental period, regeneration of the thymocytes did not take place in the grafts, provided that exogenous lymphocytes from other parts of the body were prevented by the cellulose barrier from penetrating the remnants of the thymic epithelium.
