A comparison between gonadotropin radioimmunoassays with the use of 48 hour and six-day incubation methods.


A double-antibody radioimmunoassay for human follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and human luteinizing hormone (LH) which can be carried to completion in 48 hours was compared with the conventional six-day double-antibody radioimmunoassay. The bound-over total (B/T) dose response curves for the 48 hour assay were comparable in slope and dose range with the… (More)
