However, extrapolation from specific settings may be hazardous. It is seldom clear that immune deficiencies in vitro will predict immune deficiency in vivo. Therefore, investigators often seek to strengthen inferences by inclusion of in vivo tests, such as delayed-type hypersensitivity measured by skin testing, and by assessment of the humoral immune response through assay of specific antibodies arising in response to primary or secondary (booster) immunization. Consistency of an altered immune response in the absence of acute clinical presentation continues to serve as the benchmark indicator of a putative intrinsic immune defect.
