Pi phenotypes have been determined by isoelectrofocusing in a sample of 538 healthy individuals from Southern Germany. Further subdivision of the common PiM phenotype is described. A procedure for the delineation of six common subtypes is presented. It is assumed that the six subtypes are determined by three alleles which are provisionally called PiMa, PiMb, and PiMc. Their frequencies in this sample were 0.75, 0.06, and 0.15, respectively.
