Conference paper


Female CBA/J (H-2k) mice mated with male DBA/2J (H-2d) mice show a high level of fetal resorption which can be reduced by immunization with BALB/c (H-2d) spleen cells. The morphologically defined fetal resorption rate upon which evaluation of the outcome of pregnancy has been based in this strain combination recently, is not equivalent to the rate of viable neonates.
