    Experimental allergic neuritis was induced in 30 rabbits with extract of bovine peripheral nerve in complete Freund's adjuvant. Of the 22 animals that completed the study, nine animals were plasmapheresed within two weeks of inoculation and 13 animals served as controls. The plasmapheresed animals developed a less severe form of EAN than the controls. Differences were apparent in clinical weakness, weight loss, degree of dispersion of the muscle action potential and histological changes.
