Immunologic studies show that man develops specific antibodies to a variety of serum proteins of bovine, sheep, goat, chicken, and rabbit origins as well as antibodies against cow's milk protein. The data in this report emphasize that these hetero-antibodies are more frequently found in individuals with immunological problems and/or chromosomal aberrations. The clinical significance of human hetero-antibodies against these animal proteins deserves closer clinical observation for an understanding of these immunological problems.
