Amino acids, L-valine, L-threonine. L-alanine, L-leucine and L-aspartic acid. were tested for their action on the primary and secondary immune response induced by typhoid 'H' antigen in rabbits. Antibody titres were determined using Widal's tube agglutination technique at different levels of antibody formation. All the amino acids excepting L-leucine significantly depressed the primary immune response. Secondary immune response was depressed only by L-alanine. Study of serum protein fractions by electrophoretic technique revealed no significant differences in the gamma globulin levels in control and drug-treated groups.
