A piece of thymus and a suspension of thymus cells implanted under the kidney capsule of a guinea pig were still alive by the 12th day after implantation. While the destruction of newborn thymus started on the 3rd day, it was not complete by the 12th day; the embryonal thymus showed a high vitality. The organization of thymus cell suspension started early and was undisturbed. On the other hand the vitality and organization of cultivated cells decreased. This led to the conclusion that the dedifferentiation appearing because of cell isolation promotes adherence of the transplant but extreme dedifferentiation acts against adherence of the transplant.
