Abstract

The capacity to develop the delayed type of hypersensitivity to diphtheria toxoid and ovalbumin may persist in guinea pigs and rabbits that have received doses of x-ray sufficient to eliminate a detectable antibody response. Larger doses of x-irradiation can prevent development of delayed-type hypersensitivity in rabbits.
