Analysis of sera from persons exposed to the 1957 Asian influenza epidemic demonstrated the appearance of rheumatoid factor in 14.8 per cent of 27 post-epidemic sera showing viral antibody response and in only 1.3 per cent of 79 corresponding sera which did not show viral antibody response. The factor was associated with either clinical infection or vaccination. Rheumatoid factor activity was demonstrated in both the latex FII agglutination and sensitized sheep cell tests and was abolished by… 
Rheumatoid factor in melanoma patients: Alterations of humoral tumor immunity in vitro
TLDR
Rheumatoid factors were associated with alterations of antibody reactions to melanoma cells in vitro by two serologic assays and their presence should be recognized when performing assays with tumor target cells.
Rheumatoid factors in an acute psychiatric population.
TLDR
It is now clear that rheumatoid factor is not specific for r heumatoid arthritis, but occurs in individuals with a wide variety of other diseases characterized by inflamma-tion, infection, and/or granulomatous formation.
The effect of rheumatoid factor on the immune lysis of vaccinia virus-infected cells.
The role of rheumatoid factor in an electron microscope study of hepatitis b antigens
An immune electron microscopic (IEM) study of the hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) system has shown that rheumatoid factor (RF) can be an important complicating factor when examining preparations
IgM-class rheumatoid factor interference in the solid-phase radioimmunoassay of rubella-specific IgM antibodies.
TLDR
The interference of IgM-class rheumatoid factor in the solid-phase radioimmunoassay of rubella virus IgM antibodies was studied and did show a positive correlation to both RF levels and rubella IgG titres.
DISTRIBUTION OF RHEUMATOID FACTOR ACTIVITY IN NONRHEUMATOID STATES *

  • 1969
TLDR
Rheumatoid factor is present in significant numbers of older individuals having degenerative diseases: 30% of 235 patients with an average age of 71 years (excluding those with tuberculosis, syphilis, lung disease, and sarcoidosis) were Hu FII positive; among these, 64% of those with Parkinsonism, 47% of Those with diabetes mellitus, and 17% ofThose with arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease were seropositive.
Neutralization of HIV type 1 infectivity by serum antibodies from a subset of autoimmune patients with mixed connective tissue disease.
TLDR
The current findings provide further evidence that individuals unexposed to HIV-1 may develop immunologic resistance by alternative mechanisms, possibly including molecular mimicry, or exposure to as yet unidentified retroviruses.
Observations on childhood infections with the Epstein-Barr virus.
TLDR
Patients who develop IM were found to lack antibodies to EBV prior to illness and to form high levels of antibody during illness, often in rising titer.
Rheumatoid Factor: A Novel Determiner in Cancer History
TLDR
The aim of this review is to investigate the emerging role of rheumatoid factors as determiners of cancer faith and analyze and discuss the possible roles that these autoantibodies can assume in tumor history.

THE INDUCTION OF A RHEUMATOID FACTOR-LIKE SUBSTANCE IN RABBITS
TLDR
The formation of a serum factor (RFLS) which resembled the human rheumatoid factor was a heat-stable protein that migrated electrophoretically in the gamma-beta globulin range and sedimented rapidly with ultracentrifugation.

TLDR
Studies are presented to demonstrate the sensitizing capacity of various human gamma globulin preparations for latex particles, which can be sensitized by 7S Gamma globulin as well as by aggregated gamma glob insulin.
The latex-fixation reaction in nonrheumatic diseases.
TLDR
The incidence of the variable occurrence of positive reactions in serums from normal subjects and patients with nonrheumatic diseases varies in different reports from less than 1 per cent to as high as 30 per cent and is not related to the agglutinating system used; claims for both increased sensitivity in, and specificity for, rheumatoid arthritis by any particular system.
