Jack Pruzansky served as an author in five editions of Allergic Diseases. He spent many hours mentoring fellows in the Allergy-Immunology Division during his 35-year tenure at Northwestern University. After his retirement, he still functioned as a consultant and provided scientific expertise to the division. Jack was an expert on in vitro basophil histamine release and discovered how dilute hydrochloric acid would allow for removal of IgE from basophils. This discovery allowed him to study passive transfer experimentally and led to studies of histamine releasing factors. His intellect and advice helped fellows and faculty stay out of"dark alleys" as he would say.
He will be missed.
