Abstract

Intravenously administered 7S antibody is more effective than 19S antibody in inhibiting the formation of antibody to bacteriophage φX174. Since considerable amounts of 7S antibody are needed for inhibition, serum antibody formation may act as a "feedback" mechanism to prevent hyperimmunization.
