α1-acid glycoprotein, α1-antitrypsin, and ceruloplasmin levels were followed in 150 children from the rural tropics after arrival in the temperate zone. It is postulated that multiple intestinal helminthiases, especially ancylostomiasis, cause an acute phase type of reaction which is enhanced by immunization with T.A.B.-cholera vaccine.
