    Wassermann complement-fixation test of and Noguchi and Moore’s discovery of spirochaetes in paretic brains in confirmed the long-suspected organic nature of the illness. However,Braslow suggests that it was the introduction of a purportedly effective therapy that changed doctors’attitudes toward their syphilitic patients. A second test, i.e. Wassermann test, is carried out quantitatively, so that besides confirming previous tests, it also provides a baseline in assessing the effect of treatment. In primary syphilis, Wassermann antibody is usually detectable about one week after the appearance of the primary chancre.

    In a discussion on the phenomenon of complement-fixation, the author points out that the Wassermann reaction depends on a bio-logically non-specific fixation, though for practical purposes it maybe regarded as specific, and shows how by complement-fixation if an antigen is knownan antibodymaybe detected, andif an antibodyis knownanantigen.   In , August Paul von Wassermann, a German bacteriologist and an assistant of Robert Koch, developed a complement fixation serum antibody test for syphilis – the “Wasserman reaction”.

The Wassermann Reaction in Leprosy with Special Reference to the New Complement-Fixation Technic.

In the vast majority of cases examined in this laboratory the result of the Wassermann test was simply confirmatory of the clinical findings, but there were numerous suspicious cases, or cases in which symptoms were present and the patient denied a specific history, in which the test was of the greatest value, and it is in such instances, perhaps, that it may be regarded as "the court of last Cited by: 2.

Book • 4th Edition • Complement fixation is used in the diagnosis of syphilis, as the Wassermann test. It is also sometimes applied in the diagnosis of gonorrhea, tuberculosis, and certain virus diseases; in these cases, the technique is similar to that of the Wassermann test, the chief difference.

It must be remembered that the complement-fixation test in gonorrhoea is not comparable, except to some extent in technique, with the Wassermann test.

This is a point often overlooked, yet of primary importance in the interpretation of results. The Wassermann is a test of the damage done to the tissues by the by: 3. Books (7) Pictures (2) Digital Images (1) Search.

MARVIN J. FRITZLER, ALLAN WIIK, in The Autoimmune Diseases (Fourth Edition), The first description of human autoantibodies and the development of the Wassermann test for syphilis that was initially based on agglutination and complement fixation dates to (Wassermann et al., ).In the early s, the active component of the Wassermann test was found to be a phospholipid, which.

The results were as follows. With the T (Koch) as antigen, out of 50 cases the complement fixation was positive in 18, or 36 per cent., and negative in 2. With the saline extract as antigen, out of 14 cases the complement fixation was positive in 4, or 28'5 per cent., and negative in : J.A.D.

The general impression that one gets from statements in textbooks and articles discussing the Wassermann reaction in leprosy is that the percentage of positive results is considerably higher than this figure.

Since EITNER, inobtained the Wassermann reaction in leprosy various antigens have been found to give reactions with the blood of lepers, while they are also sensitive to injections of tuberculin.
