FACTOR Rb is a protein-like, heat-labile requirement of the nematode Rhabditis briggsae Dougherty and Nigon, 1949, for growth and reproduction under axenic conditions1,2; chick embryo and mammalian liver have been shown to be good sources of it, and some activity has previously been noted in human whole blood and plasma2.
