Methods have been developed for the separation and purification of various antigenically active cellular components of H. capsulatum (34) and C. immitis (35), and chemical procedures have been employed in the characterization of these antigens. The concluding remarks illustrate the current trends in immunological studies of H. capsulatum and C. immitis. Hopefully, these approaches will provide knowledge and insight into the basic biological properties of H. capsulatum and C. immitis and should, in the future, culminate in the physicochemical characterization of their important antigens.
