Josimovich and MacLaren1 purified a substance from human placentas which cross-reacted immunologically with antiserum to human growth hormone in Ouchter-lony's double-diffusion system. Moreover, they detected this substance in the blood and urine of pregnant women, thereby raising the possibility that it might be a new placental hormone. Investigation of… CONTINUE READING
