The serum levels of immunoglobulins G, A and M of 703 apparently healthy Nigerians resident in Ibadan and aged 1-50 years were studied. The differences in values that are related to age, sex and season were also computed. Normal values of the immunoglobulins varied with age and sex. IgG mean values for the different age groups ranged from 688 to 1251 mg/100 ml in the males and from 720 to 1038 mg/100 ml in the females. For the IgA class the mean values ranged from 81 to 211 mg/100 in the males… CONTINUE READING
