Abstract

“Tolerance” to endotoxins can be established by a previous injection of an unrelated O antigen which increases the host’s resistance and his capacity for clearing the second dose of endotoxin. It has been shown that these responses are nonspecific, i.e., not mediated by antibodies, but are produced by degradation and detoxification of endotoxic lipopolysaccharides [1, 2, 3].
