Antibody suppression by zinc and nickel
Rats were treated with zinc chloride and with nickel acetate 2 weeks prior to immunization withE. coli bacteriophageT-1; antibody titers to bacteriophageT-1 were reduced 500–2600-fold in metal-treated rats compared to titers found in untreated control animals. Examination of the effect of metal treatment on lymphocyte blastogenesis revealed a significant reduction in the number of blast cells in the spleens of metal-treated rats.
