This book is a compilation of a series of papers presented at a symposium entitled "Developments in the Applications of Defined Immunofluorescent Staining" held at Stockholm, Sweden, in May 1970. The conference was primarily directed toward the solution of problems related to standardization of the immunofluorescent technique. In addition, a number of the papers review specific applications of immunofluorescence in medicine.

Part one, "Immunofluorescent Studies of Microorganisms," discusses immunofluorescence as it relates to microbiology. Part two, "Immunofluorescent Studies of Tissue and Tumor Cell Antigen-Antibody Systems," includes three papers of dermatologic interest dealing with epidermal antibodies. Part three, "Principles in the Use of Immunofluorescence," characterizes the concept of defined immunofluorescence in terms of components of the fluorescent system. Dr. Beutner's chapter is a particularly thorough review of "past progress, present status and future prospects for defined conjugates" used in immunofluorescent staining.
