Thymectomy was performed in newborn rats and the changes occurring in the epiphyseal cartilage and bone were investigated by Ca histochemical and thermoanalytical methods, one, two and six weeks following operation. Formation of Ca complexes was slowed down in the epiphyseal cartilage and the rate of growth decreased. At the same time the inorganic substance content decreased considerably in the bone tissue of operated rats as compared to the controls.
