Sample text

In spite of being a relatively harmless procedure, inoculation demonstrated a potential for producing inflammatory effects concurrent with immunity (later defined as sensitization mechanisms). Demonstration of protection of an animal model from lethal snake venom by inoculation series of sublethal doses [10] provided the introductory approach to the development of methods for immunization against microbial toxins and identification of the antibody product, antitoxin, in blood serum [12]. Systemic shock reaction of anaphylaxis—discovered as an adverse effect of immunization [21]—provided animal models for the study of hypersensitivity as an aberrant immune phenomenon [22]; particularly relevant was the challenged-sensitized guinea pig whose respiratory manifestations suggested a counterpart expression of human hay fever and asthma.

A number of anecdotal reports by Allergen Immunotherapy in a Historical Perspective Brown spoke of “thousands” of uniformly successful results of treatment with emulsified vaccines of pollen and other airborne allergens [122]. However, adverse reactions consisting of late formation and persistence of nodules, sterile abscesses and granulomata, and a potential for induction of delayed hypersensitivity to injected antigens were found inherent in emulsion therapy. Furthermore, subsequent controlled studies failed to confirm significant therapeutic effectiveness [123–125].

Proponents in the 1940s and 1950s based their belief in the validity of desensitization methods for plant contact dermatitis on the concept of cell-associated “antibody” to chemical haptens in the pathogenesis of delayed cutaneous hypersensitivity. However, there were complicating problems in the nature of induced dermatitis at locally injected or previously involved distal sites, exacerbations of existing lesions, stomatitis, gastroenteritis, anal pruritus, and dermatitis from mucous membrane contact with oral preparations.
