HBs antigen in human plasma fractions

Vox Sanguinis
P LevequeJ Malgras


Therapeutic fractions were obtained by fractionating human plasma containing HBs antigen, by the Cohn ethanol technique modified by Nitschmann. Plasmas with various HBs antigen titers were selected. The antigen was sought in each fraction by the techniques of counterelectrophoresis and radioimmunological detection in liquid phase. With the exception of very pure albumins, all fractions were found to contain the HBs antigen, though in variable proportions. A technique for the purification of albumin, applicable on an industrial scale, is proposed. It makes it possible to obtain an albumin fraction in which the HBs antigen cannot be detected by the most sensitive techniques, even starting with a plasma which is very rich in HBs antigen (titer 1/64 by counterelectrophoresis).

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.
