A radioimmunoassay has been developed to measure ferritin bound to the surface of isolated human peripheral blood mononuclear white blood cells (PBMs) in order to investigate the possible relationship of this phenomenon to breast and other forms of cancer. The assay measures the specific binding (%SP) of affinity-purified 125I-labeled rabbit anti-Hodgkin's spleen ferritin antibody to isolated patient PBMs. A preliminary prospective, preclinical trial on 300 patients was run which included: (a… CONTINUE READING
