Alpha-fetoprotein monoclonal assay: preliminary clinical findings in a high risk population.

A two-site solid phase immunoradiometric assay was developed for measurement of human alpha-fetoprotein, utilizing two high-affinity monoclonal antibodies directed against distinct and separate epitopes on the proteic structure. The analytical sensitivity of the assay is 0.5 ng/ml. The clinical sensitivity was evaluated by comparison of patients with… CONTINUE READING
