Abstract

Fifty cases of pulmonary tuberculosis were classified into unreactive (3 cases), unreactive intermediate (26 cases), reactive intermediate (18 cases) and reactive (3 cases) cases. Sera were studied for haemolytic activity by a microtiter system, C3 by single radial immunodiffusion, and the pi C/β 1A proportions by two dimensional crossed immunoelectrophoresis (2DCIF.P). The haemolytic activity and the C3 levels were significantly raised in patients. Similarly, the conversion of piC to pi A was significantly greater in patients than in controls. There was no significant intergroup difference in the classes of patients.
