In previous experimental animal studies it has been demonstrated that antibody depletion is not followed by increased antibody synthesis. To assess whether these results are conferrable to antibody-depleted humans, we measured free light chains (flcs) as markers of current antibody synthesis in 8 patients treated with immunoadsorption (IA) therapy.
