[Electrophoretic control of serum proteins in donors designated for plasmapheresis. Initial evaluation of the analysis of 3500 donors].

[Article in French]


Total serum proteins were evaluated and serum protein electrophoresis performed on 3 500 blood donors after plasmapheresis. The results were standard for total serum proteins, serum albumin and immunoglobulin in 98% of the donors, whereas monoclonal immunoglobulin, immunodeficiencies or polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia were detected in 2% of them. The frequency of monoclonal components is roughly 0.3%, corresponding to the frequency observed in normal adults of 40 to 60 years old. Donors found with monoclonal immunoglobulins or immunodeficiency should not be considered as eligible for blood donation.
