Abstract

Introduction to the theoretical backgrounds of item classification and grading is given. The approach is illustrated by three examples. These demonstrate the applicability of this type of investigation in the analysis of lymph node and spleen reactions in cancer patients, and in the analysis of changes in the thymus in experimental animals receiving specific immunosuppression. The need for an appropriate control material is emphasized. Item classification and grading is an alternative to more mathematical morphometry, and should be considered in situations in which more objective methods are too laborious.
