Excerpt from The Hahnemannian Monthly, Vol. 51: January to December, 1916
W ith the blood serum of the patient, he was able to produce anaphylactic phenomena in guinea pigs by injections later of solutions of ovo-mucoid. Of great interest, moreover, was the fact that with dilute solutions of'ovo-mucoid, almond and cat meal proteose he was able to provoke urticarial lesions in the patient by abrading the skin by means of a Von Pirquet borer. These reactions Schloss showed to be entirely specific. Of still greater importance, certainly from the standpoint of the patient, was the fact that by administering very small and gradually increasing doses of ovo-mucoid in capsule form, Schloss was able to immunize the patient absolutely, so that at the present time, eggs in any form are tolerated. It is of peculiar interest to note that this treatment also established complete immunity to oatmeal and a lessened susceptibility to almonds.
