Abstract

Pregnancy restored the impaired immune capacity of neonatally thymectomized rats towards normalcy, as measured  by the serum haemolysin response to sheep red blood cells (SRBC). Pregnancy also prevented the development of the wasting  syndrome  in  these  animals. The beneficial effect of one pregnancy lasted at least  five months.
