Here are the subject keywords with which you can obtain dozens of 
military technical reports on immunology from the Defense Technical 
Information Center, a government agency.

immunosuppression
immunology
antigen antibody reactions
immunochemistry
immunity

NOTE:  Don¹t bother using the DTIC web site--in a nutshell, it¹s 
worthless and omits the bulk of the two million technical reports in the 
DTIC collection.  Send a letter--you¹ll get much better results.

The fee is likely to be free or only a few bucks.  You probably want to 
include a statement in the letter such as *I agree to pay reasonable 
fees associated with this request.  Please notify me if the cost will 
exceed $30.*,  so that they won't delay the processing of the request.  
Remember, they will try to dissuade you from asking for such a list.  If 
they send you a letter, and you don¹t respond, they will withdraw your 
request and you won¹t get your information.  

Here is a form letter to use for your request:
