It is well known that passive antibody will specifically suppress an immune response to the corresponding antigen. The goal of this study was to determine if passive antibody had any effect on the development of immunological memory. The nature of the immune response to a second injection of sheep red blood cells (SRBC) following a primary immune response suppressed by passive antibody was investigated. C57Bl/Ks mice received a primary injection of SRBC and homologous anti-SRBC serum; 14 days later they were challenged with a second injection of SRBC. The immune response was evaluated by determining the number of cells synthesizing 19S or 7S anti-SRBC appearing in the spleens at intervals after immunization.
