Immunological Studies of Nude Mice

  • Henry H. Wortis


Nude mice pose several interesting biological questions. On the one hand they present a variety of pleiotropic effects, ranging from hairlessness to thymic dysgenesis, which have an unknown common property. On the other hand they may very well be a model for the study of immune reactions in which a single major participant—the thymus—is absent.
