ABSTRACT
It was reported that delayed hypersensitivity could be transferred with lymphoid cells from reactive human donors to previously unresponsive recipients. In the experiments transfer factor (TF) has been prepared from peripheral blood leukocytes collected with a continuous-flow blood cell separator or a Latham Blood Processor. The protocol for preparing the TF varies slightly depending upon the plans for the preparation. In some cases whole cell suspensions including leukocytes, erythrocytes and platelets are disrupted by repeated freezing and thawing.

    We propose here a rapid ballistic method that use glass beads to obtain Lawrence dialysable leucocyte extract TF (transfer factor) that transfers delayed type hypersensitivity in humans. White blood cell packets were collected from 100 healthy blood donnors. Cells were centrifuged at 800 x g for...
