Abstract : It has been shown that human allergic responses following administration of penicillin are usually correlated with the presence of circulating antibodies to derivatives of this antibiotic. The careful chemical studies by Levine et al de Weck and Parker have shown that these antibodies are most often directed against the penicilloyl determinant group, although other determinants may sometimes be involved. Antigenicity appears to be conferred upon this molecule following its in vivo conjugation with proteins derived from tissues.
