VALUE OF ABDERHALDEN'S BIOLOGIC REACTIONS TO THE OBSTETRICIAN AND GYNECOLOGIST

JAMA. 1914;LXIII(5):371-375. doi:10.1001/jama.1914.02570050007003
Abstract

At the present state of the investigation it is possible with the aid of Abderhalden's dialyzation reaction and with his optic method to demonstrate the strict specificity of the so-called protective ferments, demonstrating thereby at the same time that the protoplasms of the various organs and tissues of the animal organism differ sufficiently from each other in chemical structure to be recognizable with the aid of these ferments, even after they have been boiled or after they have been reduced to the peptone stage. It is possible to prepare placental albumin and placental peptone which will be readily cleft by pregnancy serum, but which will not be cleft by other serums and certainly not by serum from a cancer patient; on the other hand, it is also possible to prepare coagulated cancer tissue which will be cleft by cancer serum and which will not react with the serum of pregnancy.
