Abstract

Lewin (1) described a gelation reaction which takes place in human blood serum when it is mixed with an equal quantity of 80 per cent ethyl alcohol in vitro. Varying degrees of rigidity of the mixture were noticed with sera from different persons. In this study an attempt was made to discover whether there was any correlation between the degree of gelation and the type of disease had by hospitalized patients. In later studies search was also made for correlation of this reaction with composition and physical properties of the sera.
