According to this theory the manner of formation of all antibodies is the same.
With this exception these antibodies are chiefly of theoretical interest.
"Well, these people don't seem to be making any antibodies at all," Tiger said.
The formation of antibodies has even been explained on this basis by Weiggert and Ehrlich in their side-chain theory.
Experimentally, also, it appears that antibodies (agglutinins) are produced by the vaccine (and modifications thereof).
The theory of formation of amboceptors is similar to that for the formation of the other types of antibodies.
It is not apparent that the nature of the antigen would affect Ehrlichs theory of the formation of antibodies.
The succeeding chapters discuss some of the kinds of antibodies, the theory of their action and some practical applications.
Just what antibodies are chemically has not been determined because no one has as yet succeeded in isolating them chemically pure.
The question which of the body cells are engaged in the production of antibodies is not uncommonly asked.
