A role of ACAs in controlling cytokine production was suggested by experiments in mice showing that the administration of neutralizing anti-IL-6 monoclonal antibodies to mice resulted in a dramatic increase in the amount of IL-6 bioactivitiy in the circulation.
We measured the avidity of human antibodies, and of mouse and rabbit antibodies to IFN-, proteins absorbed on the wells of 96-well microtitre plates by RIA. 1). Affinity purification. Human IFN-, antibodies were purified from human Ig preparations taken from healthy subjects by a one-step chromatographic procedure using a recombinant IPN-,-coupled Sepharose CL4B affinity column . The antibodies to lPN-, were eluted from the column by 3 different methods with no loss of immunological activity.
