A summary is given of investigations which represent a broad study of the nature of immunologic maturation in the mammalian fetus in utero, and of the factors which affect and control this development. It is based upon the establishment of techniques permitting extensive and repeated surgical access to the fetus during gestation, and takes advantage of the special agammaglobulinemic and antigen- and germ-free environment of the fetus during gestation, permitting fundamental studies of the basic mechanism of response to immunization and of the rejection of tissue and organ grafts.
