New York, NY, U.S.A.: Berkley Publishing Group, 1992. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good. New York, NY, U.S.A.: Berkley Publishing Group, 1992. Very Good. New York, NY, U.S.A.: Berkley Publishing Group, 1992. Very Good. Prologue February 16, 1988 The infecting bacteria came in a swift gush as if flushed from a sewer. In an instant, several million slender, rod-shaped micro- . organisms filled the lumen of the fallopian tubes. Most were grouped in small, tight clumps. They settled against the velvety convolutions of the mucosa, nestling in the warm, fertile valleys, absorbing the abundant nutrients and expelling their own foul excretions. The delicate cells lining the interior of the oviducts were helpless in the face of the sudden invading horde. The putrid waste of the bacteria-caustic proteins and greasy fats-burned like acid, resulting in instant destruction of the fine cilia whose normal function was to move an egg toward the uterus. The tubular cells released their defensive and messenger chemicals, signaling the body for help. Unfortunately, the defensive secretions had no effect on the bacteria, whose membranes were protected by a brownish waxy envelope of lipid. Medical students fresh from their microbiological labs would have recognized the bacteria--or so they would have thought. The fatty bacterial cell walls were "acid fast," capable of absorbing certain stains and resisting decolorizing with acid alcohol. The medical students would have cried in unison, "Tuberculosis," with a self-congratulatory sense of satisfaction. Tubercular or not, as far as the tubal cells were concerned, any kind of invading bacteria meant trouble. The messenger chemicals that the cells had released initiated the complex immunological defense against foreign invaders which had evolved over the entire billion-year evolution of earthly life. The chemicals released initiated a change in the local blood vessels. The blood flow increased and opened up tiny fenestration's, releasing plasma into the tissue.
