A COMPARISON OF ERYTHROCYTE SEDIMENTATION RATES AND ELECTROPHORETIC PATTERNS OF NORMAL AND PATHOLOGICAL HUMAN BLOOD

Abstract

Electrophoretic studies and erythrocyte sedimentation rate measurements were carried out on normal and pathological human blood. An increase in α globulin levels appears to take place, as well as an increase in sedimentation rates, when there is present any considerable inflammation or tissue destruction, irrespective of its cause. A graphic correlation is presented between sedimentation rates and α globulin levels, which is at least as good as a similar correlation involving fibrinogen levels.
