One can scarcely question the idea that man is genetically complex and, thus, individual. Part of man's innate individuality is expressed immunologically through the development of specific antigens connected with various cellular constituents. The discovery that cells from skin and parenchyma share common antigens with leukocytes has opened a vast area in human genetics and immunology with potential application to many fields of medicine and surgery. Since leukocytes may be readily biopsied, it is possible that large numbers may be obtained in relatively pure suspension for study in the laboratory. As a result, information concerning isoantigenic systems of human leukocytes
