The Measurement of Cell-Mediated Immunity in Man

  • Thomas D. Brogan
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 15)


The Aschoff node was described in 1904 (1) by the pathologist whose life and work is being commemorated here in Freiburg. This focus of chronic inflammation is probably the end result of a cell-mediated immune response but medical science today is still lacking a rapid and reliable in-vitro method of measuring this most important reaction.
