Abstract

Summary Circulating immune complexes were isolated from 15 patients with acute leukaemia and 13 healthy blood donors by PEG precipitation. These were analysed according to their IgG, IgM and C4 content by optical rate nephelometry. Immune complexes of leukaemic patients contained higher amounts of IgM as compared to those from normal subjects. The clinical relevance of IgM containing immune complexes in leukaemia is discussed.
