a group of us are developing a paper to bring back to attention
these forgotten papers.  There is no particular theory, except
to note that cell debris is consumed either by intracellular
lysosomes (autophagic vacuoles) or by vacuoles in other cells
(phagocytosis).  The former is commonly seen in insects and
in tissues such as the mammary gland, but other than the
papers listed above it hasn't been well worked out.
