Part three of this three-part series commences with other aspects of immunity and infection. Parts one and two appear in previous issues of the Archives.1,2

OTHER ASPECTS OF IMMUNITY AND INFECTION  In view of the special importance of immune disorders in the anomalous dominance (AD) population, we have devoted a special section to immunity and infection, dealing primarily with some topics not covered earlier.

Localized and Lateralized Immune Effects  In the AD population certain immune disorders occur with especially high frequency, eg, those involving the gastrointestinal tract or the thyroid. There might be several reasons for this, eg, this population might have a high frequency of genes determining special susceptibilities of certain systems. Another possibility is that the elevated frequency of these disorders may be the result of the timing of suppression of the developing thymus gland by hormonal or other effects.
