Concise reviews of recent basic developments in immunology (nature of antibodies and effects of antigen-antibody complexes), characteristics of immunity and host response in parasite disease, antigens of parasites, and uses of some methods (complement fixation, passive hemagglutination, precipitin test, agar gel diffusion immunoglobulin determination, intradermal tests for immediate type of hypersensitivity and fluorescent antibody test) in study of immune phenomena. Recommendations for further study of antigens of parasites; determination of role of various antibodies in immune defense; specific recommendations for further study of malaria and trypanosomiasis; and other suggestions.
