Mitsuda reaction. Lepromin A (0,1 ml) produced by the Schieffelin Leprosy Research Sanatorium, Karigiri, India, was inoculated in the left forearm of all the patients.
Comparison between anti PGL-1 serology and Mitsuda reaction: clinical reading, microscopic findings and immunohistochemical analysis.
However his tuberculosis skin test (PPD) was strongly positive (30 mm), and the Mitsuda reaction
was also positive (7 mm).

leprae, manifested by positive skin tests (Mitsuda reaction
) and marked lymphocyte proliferative responses to M.
(3) Two types of positive skin reactions are described: an early reaction (Fernandez Reaction), read after 48-72 hours; and a late reaction (Mitsuda Reaction), read after 3-4 weeks.
In this context, the Mitsuda reaction becomes a valuable research tool in areas of enormous impact over human health, such as immunology and genetics.
Since Mitsuda had been interested in this problem later leading to the Mitsuda reaction
, it is conceivable that Mitsuda recognised the ability of Dr.
Clinical parameters such as induration of Mitsuda reaction
were also used in these studies.
