The article focuses on issues related to anaphylactic heart reaction. In past studies, the authors have demonstrated that heart reaction in vivo, represented a good experimental model for studying the immediate allergic or anaphylactic reaction. The authors' findings suggest that the fibronolysin heart reaction represents a non-immune cardiac reaction caused either directly through some enzyme action upon the heart muscle or indirectly via a short activation of complement factors demonstrating a peculiarly analogous course with the immunologically induced anaphylactic heart reaction.
