Extensive Definition

Immunochemistry is a branch of chemistry that involves the study of the reactions and components on the immune system.
Various methods in immunochemistry has been developed and refined, and been used in scientific study, from virology to molecular evolution.
One of the earliest examples of immunochemistry is the Wasserman test to detect Syphilis. Svante Arrhenius was also one of the pioneers in the field; he published Immunochemistry in 1907 which described the application of the methods of physical chemistry to the study of the theory of toxins and antitoxins.
immunochemistry in Italian: Immunochimica
immunochemistry in Japanese: 免疫化学
immunochemistry in Portuguese: Imunoquímica
immunochemistry in Serbian: Imunohemijske metode
