Schreiber et al. attributed this discrepancy in the results to the impurity of the immunogen and the immunization schedule. 13° They investigated the transient nature of the antireceptor anti-idiotypic response, which was shown to be cyclical and corresponded to the production of antibodies that could bind to/3-AR and stimulate adenylate cyclase. Disappearance of the antireceptor antibodies in the serum coincided with appearance of adrenergic ligand-binding activity, corresponding to the development of the autologous anti-anti-idiotypic antibodies (Ab3) directed against the induced anti-idiotypic molecules.

This study emphasizes the existence of an idiotype-anti-idiotype network in parasitic infections. Such a network can be regulated so that beneficial protective immunity can be induced. Phillips et al. 72 studied a functional idiotype-anti-idiotype network that is germane to regulation in schistosomiasis. They studied interaction of antigen, idiotypes, and anti-idiotypes in the immune system and established correlations with resistance to parasitemia. What is interesting is that different monoclonal antibodies with the same epitopic specificity behave differently in terms of rendering protective immunity.
