An in vivo method of assessing the competence of the cell-mediated immune system (Multitest CMI) was used in 200 healthy volunteers (age range 17-88 years). The profile of reactivity to seven individual antigens was determined. A positive reaction was obtained in 96.5% of the subjects who reacted positively to at least one antigen with 78% reacting to two… CONTINUE READING
