    The DNA content per nucleus has been measured in the lining cells of 12 specimens of rheumatoid and 12 of nonrheumatoid synovial tissue. Optimal conditions for this reaction on these cells have been defined, and an index of DNA synthesis has been applied to give a quantitative measure of the degree of synthesis. This has given evidence of some DNA synthesis in both types of synoviocytes, compatible with the amount found in a slowly self-replacing tissue. There was no difference in the amount of synthesis in the rheumatoid and nonrheumatoid synoviocytes.
