Present Status of the Immunology of Gangliosides

Since the reaction of neurochemists to immunology, and specifically to the immunology of gangliosides, may involve a time-delayed reversal of enthusiasm, we hope this survey will be an aid in tempering this reaction. There is a story told that on one occasion when ships of the British Navy were passing in review, one ship had the misfortune to commit six successive blunders. All eyes turned to the flagship anticipating the admiral’s horrendous reaction and were hopelessly puzzled when his signal flashed “Good”. A full twenty seconds later the message was completed by the word “God”. Although the interval in working in the field of immunology is much longer than twenty seconds, the complete message is often the same.
