Development of antibody formation and resistance to infection

  • Bo Conradsson Vahlquist


There is still considerable confusion in the literature with respect to the morphology and the function of the reticuloendothelial system. In addition to what has been said on pp. 345 f. I shall, therefore, cite some data mainly collected from the recent monograph by Marshall, “An outline of the cytology and pathology of the reticular tissue” (8).
