Passive immune complex glomerulonephritis in mice: models for various lesions found in human disease. II. Low avidity complexes and diffuse proliferative glomerulonephritis with subepithelial deposits.
Intravenous injections of mice three times a day for 3 days with soluble complexes of 3 mg. of moderately avid rabbit antibody to chicken egg albumin prepared by dissolution of equivalence precipitates in 80 times the equivalence amount of antigen resulted in a combined mesangial and loop localization of immune complexes. With complexes formed from antibody… (More)
