Página 275 - ... the dentine more transparent, and softer, so as to be cut with a knife. The acids which may actually effect the first changes in the production of caries are such as are taken with food, or in medicines, or such as are formed in the mouth itself by some abnormality in our secretions, which should be alkaline, or by an acid fermentation of particles of food. But acids alone will not account for all the phenomena ol caries in the teeth.
Página 150 - A complete identity of structure connects the " foundation membranes" of the Medusae with the corresponding organs in the rest of the series ; and it is curious to remark, that throughout, the outer and inner membranes appear to bear the same physiological relation to one another as do the serous and mucous layers of the germ ; the outer becoming developed into the muscular system and giving rise to the organs of offence and defence ; the inner, on the other hand, appearing to be more closely subservient...

This egg had been given him at Cairo, and was still fresh, the air space having not even been formed. He soon, however, noticed the appearance of dark blotches within the shell, and having broken it open to ascertain the cause, he found that they were produced by the growth of minute fungi.

Página 85 - Genersich f have shown that the fasciae, in virtue of this structure, play a very important part in keeping up the flow of lymph through the lymphatic vessels. His first experiment was as follows : A piece of fascia was removed from the leg of a dog, and tied over the mouth of a small glass funnel with the inner side (ie the side next to the muscles) uppermost.
Página 355 - Echinoderms, and the latter is seen in its full development in the adult Rotifera, and in the larval Gasteropoda and Pteropoda. The identity of the velum of larval Gasteropods, with the ciliated disks of Rotifera, seems to admit of little doubt, and it would be well to have one term, eg, velum, by which to describe both. The Trochosphere is the earlier, more or less spherical form in which the velum is represented by an annular ciliated ridge, and which is sometimes (eg, Chiton) provided with a polar...
Página 275 - ... internal or vital, as external and chemical. Decay begins at the surface, and there it must be checked, if checked at all. It is chiefly caused by acids, and by a certain fungus, the leptothrix buccalis, found abundantly in the mouth. Under the microscope, the fungus appears as a gray, finely-granular mass or matrix, with filaments delicate and stiff, which erect themselves above the surface of this granular s'ubstance, so as to resemble an uneven turf.
Página 275 - Bowditch, in examining forty persons of different professions, and living different kinds of life, found in almost all vegetable and animal parasites. The parasites were numerous in proportion to the neglect of cleanliness. The means ordinarily employed to clean the teeth had no effect on the parasites, while soapy water appeared to destroy them.
