Passage of Bovine Serum Albumin from the Uterine Lumen into the Human Foetus

Abstract

THE intrauterine transfer of macromolecules from the mother to the foetus has been well established in several species of animals, including the monkey. However, except for antibody transfer1, there is little information on the human placenta in this respect. We report here the results of some experiments on near-term human mothers using a non-antibody protein.
