    Abstract : Vitamin B1 counteracts the Wassermann and Kahn reactions when given to patients before their blood is taken for the test, or when it is added to test sera in vitroin vitroSubject Category: Techniques, Methodologies and Equipment

    . Experiments showed that vitamin B1 had an influence on the hydration of protein: in small doses, hydration is increased; in large doses it is lowered.
    The effect concerned particularly the alpha and beta globulinsglobulinsSubject Category: Chemicals and Chemical Groups

    , and, as increased hydration lowers the tendency to flocculate, reactions such as the Kahn or the complement fixation reaction are likely to be less pronounced in the presence of the vitamin.
