Abstract:

The mission of this lab has been to present a unified and consistent account of the problem of in vitro anaphylaxis under such conditions as would assure control over 1 the nature and quantity of antibody bound to the tissue and, 2 over the nature and purity of the antigen used for challenge. The materials selected for study were chosen because they were suitable as biochemical probes for various levels of attack on tissues and because they could simultaneously function as antigens. They thus represented significant models of clinical disorders in which natural toxicity could be compounded by immediate hypersensitivity.
