Purification of Anti-Thyroglobin Antibodies


WE wish to report a simple method for obtaining highly purified anti-thyroglobulin antibodies. We are prompted to communicate our findings because of the interest at present in thyroglobulin antibodies—particularly with respect to human ‘auto-immune’ disease; the fact that the purification of these antibodies has not been previously described; and finally because of the ease with which good yields of purified antibody may be obtained.
