      Liposome-coupled lepromin; delayed type hypersensitivity

    • Abstract

       

      Liposome-coupled lepromin was found to elicit a 3-week skin reaction in leprosy patients similar to that elicited by wholeMycobacterium leprae. The present study suggests that the presentation of antigens in a specific orientation is necessary for evoking delayed type hypersensitivity response in humans.
