PREVENTION OF PNEUMOCOCCAL PNEUMONIA BY IMMUNIZATION WITH SPECIFIC CAPSULAR POLYSACCHARIDES
1. Immunization of man with 0.03 to 0.06 mg. of each of the capsular polysaccharides of pneumococcus types I, II, V, and VII, given in a single subcutaneous injection, has been shown to be effectiveExpand

A QUANTITATIVE THEORY OF THE PRECIPITIN REACTION : III. THE REACTION BETWEEN CRYSTALLINE EGG ALBUMIN AND ITS HOMOLOGOUS ANTIBODY.
1. A quantitative theory of the precipitin reaction based on the laws of classical chemistry has now been found applicable to the crystalline egg albumin-antibody system. Equations derived from theExpand

THE PRECIPITIN REACTION BETWEEN TYPE III PNEUMOCOCCUS POLYSACCHARIDE AND HOMOLOGOUS ANTIBODY
The experiments recorded above show that in the case of antipneumococcus horse serum or purified antibody the arbitrary immunological procedure (37° for 2 hours, overnight in the ice box) does notExpand

Inhibition experiments with pneumococcal C and depyruvylated type-IV polysaccharides.
Abstract Phosphorylcholine, a component of the group-specific “somatic” C-polysaccharide of pneumococcus, has previously been shown to be a potent inhibitor of the precipitation of C-reactive proteinExpand
