Radiosensitivity of the Antigen-Trapping Mechanism and its Relation to the Suppression of Immune Response
Previous radiation recovery studies [1, 2, 3] suggest that reconstitution of the secondary antibody-forming potential (i.e., immunological memory) occurs only in the presence of persisting antigen. These results further demonstrate that the recovery of the secondary antibody-forming potential, if it occurs, is always incomplete.
