Abstract

A clinical, laboratory, and immunological analysis of 253 cases with chronic gastrointestinal diseases has revealed changed levels and ratio of serum immunoglobulins of the three principal classes in 46.6% of patients. These changes have been the most marked in chronic hepatitides, the least so in chronic inflammatory diseases of the intestine, in peptic ulcer, and particularly in chronic gastritis. These shifts have been nonspecific but associated with clinical and laboratory signs of an active process, and may be regarded as additional criteria for an individual assessment of the process, its activity, and for planning the treatment, immunocorrecting therapy included.
