Serum ferritin in patients with cancer: determination with antibodies to HeLa cell and spleen ferritin.

Abstract

Some malignant tissues and cell lines contain acidic isoferritins and it has been suggested that the assay of such isoferritins in serum may be of value in the diagnosis of malignancy. This paper describes a radioimmunoassay for acidic ferrtin purified from HeLa cells. Examiniation of purified heart, kidney, liver and spleen ferritin showed that the assay… (More)
