Heterologous anti-rat-thymocyte-serum produces an acute hemorrhagic pulmonary lesion. Pneumotoxicity is dependant upon complement since preparatory C' - depletion protects the experimental animal from its letal properties. Absorption of serum with finely dispersed homologous tissue suspensions of lung and thymus is eliminative of toxicity while prophylactic… CONTINUE READING
