Early studies on IgA immune responses implied the absence of immunologic memory in such responses (1,2). At the initiation of the research reported here, immunologic memory in the IgA system had not been unequivically demonstrated. Subsequently, several reports have appeared which support the concept of immunologic memory in the IgA system (3–5).
