Studies were conducted in rats to determine whether pre-feeding antigen can prevent the development of Bordetella pertussis-induced homocytotropic antibody (HCA) formation and anaphylactic sensitization to the fed antigen. DA rats fed ragweed for a minimum of 2 wk and Sprague-Dawley rats fed horse serum for at least 4 wk demonstrated specific unresponsiveness to anaphylactic sensitization as measured by their inability to form HCA and their normotensive response to intravenous challenge with… CONTINUE READING
