The Arthus reaction in domestic cats. Academic Article uri icon


  • A classic Arthus reaction was elicited in normal domestic cats using chicken red blood cells as antigen. The response was quantitated grossly by measuring the area of the resulting skin bleb at several set time intervals and by microscopic examination of biopsies taken at the conclusion of each of the trials. This method produced an intense Arthus reaction in each of the cats tested.
