Abstract

Summary

  • 1.  The repeated feeding to guinea pigs and rabbits of killed larvae of , presumably containing denatured (cooked) or undenatured (frozen) antigen, failed to induce reactivity in the animals as measured by skin tests or flocculation tests of the serum.
  • 2.  Rabbits are superior to guinea pigs for experiments requiring skin-testing or flocculation of serum after infection with trichinae.
  • 3.  The flocculation test gives promise of being a useful test in suspected cases of trichinosis; an objection is that it requires large amounts of dried antigen.
  • 4.  This experiment did not afford an explanation for the unusually high incidence of positive skin reactions among patients confined in institutions.
