Abstract

Considerable effort has been made to create animal models in which functions of the human immune system can be studied under the experimentalin vivoconditions. An important step in this direction was demonstrated when the SCID mice were stably grafted with human lymphoid cells. This animal model allows the testing of various antigens and adjuvants inin situconditions inducing human immune effector cells and permitting the optimization of the subsequent response.
