In his advent to the Ciba origin Symposium on "Immunopotentia tion," Sir Peter Medawar said that, "for the earlier 20 years the keep an eye on of the immune reaction has been almost equated to immunosuppression as the nice objective of utilized immunology has been the transplantation of tissues," and that, "with the invention of tumor immunity-the point of interest of immuno logical keep an eye on has replaced from immunosuppression to immunpotentiation and correspondingly the nice prize of utilized immunology has develop into the preven tion and keep watch over of malignant growth." Corynebacterium parvum is now univer sally famous as being the main powerful almost immediately identified immunopotentiator. C parvum is on the middle of just about all papers provided at this convention and it's been analyzed from a variety of viewpoints: taxonomy, pharmacology, immunopotentiation, stimulation of host resistance to tumor invasion in experi psychological types and in human therapeutics. just about all info stated during this quantity are unique and lately received. The discussions have been spontaneous, stimulating, and hugely enriching, and the consequences already confirmed and re ported listed here are in lots of respects particular. Discussions on the convention printed many different elements which require extra exploration. Nonspecific immunopotentiation has strongly penetrated into immunology, immunopathology, and, lately, oncology. certainly, this region of study will witness very important advancements within the close to destiny. This publication deals the 1st synthesis of shortly to be had wisdom and emphasizes destiny prospects.
