RE: Fite control

From:Walzer Susan

I had a pathologist bring me a block years ago from Carvelle( sp.?) in
Lousiana.(I think it was a hospital for Hansen's) I do not know if it is
still there. I heard that armadillos are the only other animal to carry this
disease. Would love to know more..

Hi Histonetters!

My current problem, is my search for some new Fite control blocks.  Leprosy
is apparently not rampant on the prairies (Canadian that is)!

Does anyone know where I can get some new blocks/tissue to process??  Am
willing to beg, trade, etc!!  Might have to go to Molokai and self biopsy
soon if I don't find any!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
