Abstract:

In guinea pigs immunized by living brucellosis vaccine, the subcutaneous administration of both microbe cells and a soluble antigen demonstrated fixation at the site of the developed allergic inflammation. In the regional lymphatic nodes of immune animals a considerable part of the soluble antigen was fixed. The radioactivity of the internal organs in the immunized animals was less than in the control animals, regardless of which antigen was administered to them. The removal of the radioactive decay products of the antigens took place faster in the immune animals.
