Title Some immunologic relationships of antibody containing serum fractions of the tetanus hyperimmunized horse.
Date 1949
Description A. Some of the general principles of immunology have been presented, especially regards in vitro reactions, as an orientation to quantitative immunochemistry. B. The major principles of quantitative immunochemistry have been discussed, especially as regards to use of the quantitative precipitin technique. The necessarily laborious mathematical treatment of the theory of the precipitin reaction was omitted. C. Some of the principal means of physical and chemical separation of the protein constituents of serum have been briefly described. D. A few of the properties of antibodies have been cited as an orientation to the experimental problem undertaken. E. The material and techniques of the quantitative precipitin method have been presented in regard to the immunological relationship of the gama-, T-, and IV-globulins of hyperimmune equine antitetanus serum. F. The observation of considerable interaction between the three globulins studied has been recorded. The demonstration of this immunologic overlap supports the concept of a third antibody containing protein component of the toxin hyper-immunized animal serum. Many of the conclusion previously based on the assumption of only two protein fractions of the hyper-immunized horse seem, therefore, invalidated.
