Abstract

After two intraplantar injections of sheep red blood cells (SRBC) + Freund's complete adjuvant given at intervals of a week, rats which had been deprived of dietary proteins for 65 days produced much smaller quantities of serum haemagglutinins than normally fed rats. On the other hand protein-deprived rats reacted with at least the same intensity as the controls with respect to the phenomenon of immunocyto-adherence, tested by counting the rosette-forming cells in the lymph nodes and the spleen.
