Isoelectric focusing and immunofixation allow the detection of abnormal immunoglobulin bands in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). In normal subjects, the immunoglobulins in the CSF are derived from serum. In inflammatory disorders of the nervous system, there may be intrathecal immunoglobulin synthesis usually seen as oligoclonal bands confined to the CSF.(More)
Patients with phenylketonuria (PKU) are frequently deficient in the essential trace element selenium (Se), because of their very low protein diet. Using two approaches to investigate T-cell response to proliferative signaling, viz, mitogenesis caused by the monoclonal antibody OKT3 and the plant lectin phytohaemagglutinin (PHA), we demonstrated(More)
We have investigated the effect of an acute phase response on the plasma concentrations of alpha-1-antitrypsin (alpha 1 AT) in various phenotypes. Ninety seven per cent of patients with an acute phase response or pregnant patients who had an MS, MZ, S or SZ phenotype had alpha 1 AT levels within or above the reference interval of patients with the M(More)
