Pathological changes in inbred strains of mice following early thymectomy and irradiation
- 9 Downloads
Mice subjected to thymectomy and irradiation were found to develop a range of pathological change in various organs. These changes were accompanied by antibodies to a variety of self-components. The pattern of pathological and autoimmune change was found to vary with the strain. This strain-related expression did not appear to be associated with the major histocompatibility complex (H-2).
