It is clearly beyond the limitations of each volume in this series to comprehensively cover progress in each of these fields.

Analysis of responsiveness of B lymphocytes has been greatly aided by the availability of athymic nude mice. The immunological responsiveness of these mice to a wide range of stimuli has been reviewed and analyzed by H. H. Wortis.
