Opposing Effects of Immunity to Endotoxin: Hypersensitivity Versus Protection

  • A. I. Braude


Immune reactions to endotoxin may be either beneficial or harmful. In non-immunized subjects most, but not all, reactions attributed to immune mechanisms appear to be deleterious. Active or passive immunization, on the other hand, may lead either to protection or hypersensitivity (increased susceptibility). In fact, the two may be present together as the following review will attempt to demonstrate.
