In her opinion, many in the United States turned their attention to tissue rather than organ culture due to the strong influence of Carrel's work at the Rockefeller Institute (14) during these early years. Although some work has been done with lower vertebrate species such as urodele and anuran amphibians (15), in order to better draw species comparisons with man, much work had been done with organ cultures of mammals including humans. An even casual perusal of the biomedical literature will reward one with a myriad of papers on organ culture of fetal, neonatal, and adult tissues, including eye (10, 51, 52), ear (2), periodontum and teeth (58, 78), pituitary (3), thyroid and parathyroid (5, 50, 68), trachea and lung (25,42,61,75,76, 79), alimentary canal (9, 12.
