By means of the macrophage electrophoretic mobility (MEM) test the supposed immunosuppressive activity of the pregnancy-associated alpha2-glycoprotein (pregnancy zone protein) could be demonstrated significantly. Pregnancy sera and sera of nonpregnant women with hormonal contraception containing this pregnancy protein showed an immunosuppresive activity,(More)
Investigation of the immunoglobulins in the vaginal lavage fluids are semiquantitatively. The aim of the present study was to complete the semiquantitative S-IgA estimations with an "S-IgA/IgA" ratio. An antiserum against the secretory component (Anti-SC) and an S-IgA standard as well as an antiserum against the immunoglobulin A(Anti-IgA) and a serum IgA(More)
Our experiences in the treatment of functional sterility in 482 patients with clomiphene are reported. The dosage of clomiphene was 100 mg per day for 5 days. If treatment was without success after 3 cycles dosage was changed to 150 mg per day for 7 days. The ovulation induction rate detected by basal body temperature was 74.5%. Conceptions were obtained in(More)
Three techniques for ambulatory diagnosis of female sterility are compared and critically assessed for their potential benefits and drawbacks. They are endometrial biopsy on the first day of cycle, hysterosalpingography in combination with CO2 pertubation, and hydrotubation, using 0.06 per cent phenolphthalein (Speck's test). There were many more inherent(More)
Radial immunodiffusion, according to Mancini, was applied to 15 hospitalised patients, both during and after hospitalisation. They were of both sexes and all afflicted with dermatological diseases (psoriasis, eczema, mycosis). Determination of serum concentration of pregnancy-associated alpha 2-glycoprotein (alpha 2-PAG, PZ) was the purpose of the tests.(More)
In 1970, Field and Caspary reported that lymphocytes from patients with malignant disease can be stimulated by a basic protein from human brain (human encephalitogenic protein--HEP). The stimulated lymphocytes are capable of releasing the macrophage-slowing factor, which reduces the electrophoretic mobility of guinea-pig macrophages. In general, this effect(More)
