||P.286 left column:"In the stomach, the oxyntic pit-gland unit includes pit, zymogenic and parietal cells which respectively migrate outwards, inwards, and in both directions their turnover times average 3, 194 and 54 days, respectively." p.291 left column top paragraph:"The overall turnover time of pit cells averages 3 days
(primary source 43)." p.291 right column 2nd paragraph:"Zymogenic cells are end cells which eventually acquire signs of degeneration and finally die at the gland bottom after a long turnover time of ~194 days (primary source 45)." p.292 left column top paragraph:"Young parietal cells in the isthmus and neck are more active than old parietal cells in the pit and base regions. The estimated turnover time of parietal cells is about 54 days (primary source 49)."
