I'm sorry I do not have access to this tissue for you.  If you get no other
responses, I can contact some other labs in the field who may be able to
help you.  The important thing is to get the correct region.  It is very
narrow, and the prosectors must pay close attention.  Primate cardiac
stomach is glandular (as opposed to non-glandular in rodents), and is
adjacent to the esophagus.
