CIRCULATING antigen–antibody (AgAb) complexes are capable of damaging various tissues, for example, renal glomeruli, vessels and joints1. In addition, immune complexes (IC) can interfere with cellular immunity and, to some extent, decrease the immune response2–4. We report here that all infants fed on cow's milk have circulating complexes containing bovine proteins as antigens and IgG antibodies of maternal origin. These data raise questions as to the possible involvement of such complexes in… Expand
Circulating immune complexes in infants fed on cow's milk
TLDR
It is concluded that the possible pathogenicity of immune complexes cannot be assessed on the basis of a single insensitive test and in the absence of symptoms of serum sickness. Expand
Measurement of circulating IgG and IgE food-immune complexes.
TLDR
Despite the clear evidence that immune complexes can mediate immunopathologic mechanisms, the measurement of circulating immune complexes in these disease states has proven to be of limited value. Expand
Effect of antigen load on development of milk antibodies in infants allergic to milk.
TLDR
Analysis of antibody responses of infants allergic to milk according to their degree of exposure to cows'-milk protein supports recent experimental evidence that appreciable amounts of allergen suppress rather than stimulate IgE production and lends support for the role of IgE in immediate-type allergic reactions. Expand
Response of circulating immune complexes to food challenge in relapsing IgA nephropathy
TLDR
The response of circulating immune complexes (CIC) to food challenge was assessed in 15 subjects with IgA nephropathy (IgAN) and recurrent macroscopic haematuria and confirmed that some PEG-precipitated material represented antigen-antibody complexes containing food antigen. Expand
A method for estimation of circulating immune complexes after oral challenge with ovalbumin
TLDR
Children with high serum levels of antibody to ovalbumin had significantly higher concentrations of IgG‐ovalbumin complexes than children with low antibody levels, suggesting a consumption of C3 by these immune complexes. Expand
Intestinal uptake of ovalbumin in malabsorption and food allergy in relation to serum IgG antibody and orally administered sodium cromoglycate
TLDR
The results support the view that SCG affects the absorption of food antigens and the OA‐absorption test, including estimations of both OA and antibodies to OA is considered a useful model for studies of immunological mechanisms involved in food allergy and gastrointestinal disorders. Expand
A Re-Examination of the Incidence of Circulating Immune Complexes in Normal Pregnancy
Circulating immune complexes were detected in 20% of serum samples from pregnant patients by the liquid-phase C1q-binding assay. Two other immune complex assays yielded negative results with the sameExpand
Immunology of gastrointestinal food allergy in infancy and early childhood
TLDR
Intolerance to various foods, especially the proteins of cows’ milk, has been recognized in children for many years and the conditions may be immunological in origin. Expand
Immune complexes in primary biliary cirrhosis contain mitochondrial antigens.
TLDR
It is indicated that in some patients with PBC, circulating IC contain mitochondrial antigens, similar to that detected in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis. Expand
IgA, glomerulonephritis and liver disease.

TLDR
Measurement of reticuloendothelial function and the clearance of IgA polymers and IC is now required in patients with primary IgA nephropathy and HSP, as well as as a clinical spectrum from isolated glomerulonephritis to systemic IC disease (HSP). Expand

IMMUNE REACTIONS INDUCED IN INFANTS BY INTESTINAL ABSORPTION OF INCOMPLETELY DIGESTED COW'S MILK PROTEIN
TLDR
It was demonstrated that absorption may occur in infants who have nutritional disorders or are fed excessive amounts of protein foods and under the influence of disease or through procedures in the experimental laboratory protein not completely digested may be absorbed from the intestine and enter the body fluids. Expand
Immunoglobulin class of antibodies to cow's milk casein in infant sera and evidence for low molecular weight IgM antibodies.
TLDR
In the youngest infants IgG was the only immunoglobulin reacting with casein and in selected sera containing IgM antibody to casein, evidence is produced of a low molecular weight form of μ-specific antibody. Expand
Secretory IgA antibodies against cow's milk proteins in human milk and their possible effect in mixed feeding.
TLDR
Those on artificial feeds who had been on mixed feeding of human milk andcow's milk for less than 1 week had significantly higher levels of IgG antibodies to cow's milk proteins than those who had be on mixed feed for a period longer than 3 weeks. Expand
The intestinal absorption of antigenic protein by normal infants.
TLDR
Observations were conducted on normal infants whose food contained proteins which they had not ingested before, and to determine whether sufficient antigenic protein was absorbed from the intestinal tract to cause the appearance of specific precipitin. Expand
The gastrointestinal absorption of unaltered protein in normal infants and in infants recovering from diarrhea.
The serum concentration of egg albumin after the oral administration of 1 gm./kg. of purified egg albumin was determined by means of a quantitative immunochemical technique in 21 infants recoveringExpand
Blocking antigen-antibody complexes on the T-lymphocyte activation during in vitro incubation before adoptive transfer.
TLDR
Boosting mice with antigen in saline following initial immunization with antigens in adjuvant proves the most effective method of loading spleen cells with antigen. Expand
Suggestive evidence that the "blocking antibodies" of tumor-bearing individuals may be antigen--antibody complexes.
TLDR
It is suggested that the blocking factor in sera from tumor-bearing animals is an antigen-antibody complex, capable of binding to the target cells and/or reacting with lymphocytes immune to their antigens, thus blocking the lymphocytes' reactivity. Expand
Experimental aortic lesions of acute serum sickness in rabbits.
TLDR
The topographic localization of lesions and the morphologic changes observed suggest that endothelial injury occurs first, probably due to immune complex deposition, and that platelets play a secondary or reactive role in the process. Expand
Blocking of lymphocyte-mediated cytotoxicity for rat hepatoma cells by tumour-specific antigen-antibody complexes.
TLDR
The objective of these studies, using a transplanted rat hepatoma (D23), was to test directly whether such complexes prepared from solubilized tumour-specific antigen and antiserum exhibit blocking activity. Expand
EXPERIMENTAL INDUCTION OF ATHERO-ARTERIOSCLEROSIS BY THE SYNERGY OF ALLERGIC INJURY TO ARTERIES AND LIPID-RICH DIET
TLDR
Results of this investigation support the hypothesis that the synergy of allergic injury to arteries and lipid-rich diet can lead to athero-arteriosclerosis. Expand
