Abstract : The reactivity was studied of neutrophilic Leucocytes in rheumatic patients by means of contact with streptoccal allergen in vitro. Factors of humoral (properdin level, complement titer) and cellular (phagocytic activity of leucocytes) immunity were also studied. Results indicate that the majority of patients with recurrent rheumocarditis (protracted, latent course) show both a specific reorganization of the reactivity of neutrophilic leucocytes and a decrease of humoral and cellular factors of immunity.
