Streszczenie

W pracy przedstawiono badania z zakresu swoistej odporności humoralnej u ludzi oraz u zwierząt, w zakażeniu lub immunizacji bakteriami zaliczanymi obecnie do rodzaju Chlamydia sp. (Ch.) i Chlamydophila sp. (Chl.). Zarazki te bytują wewnątrzkomórkowo, występują powszechnie w przyrodzie i są przyczyną wielu schorzeń. Wykazano, że zakażenie lub immunizacja tymi drobnoustrojami wpływa na swoistą odporność humoralną przez zmianę liczby i aktywności limfocytów B oraz stężenia surowiczych i wydzielniczych immunoglobulin, a zmiany te pojawiają się już po kilku godzinach i utrzymują do kilku tygodni od zakażenia lub immunizacji.

Abstract

In the paper studies were presented in the range of specific humoral immunity in humans as well as in animals following infection or immunisation with bacteria of Chlamydia sp. (Ch.) and Chlamydophila sp. (Chl.) genera. Those germs live intracellular, they are very common in environment and they are cause of many disease. Infection or immunisation with the bacteria was shown to affect specific humoral immunity by amount and activity of lymphocytes B and amount of serum and secretory immunoglobulins. The changes appeared already few hours after the infection or immunisation and persisted for a few days – a few decades of days.
