Alpha-fetoprotein in tumor-bearing mice assayed by particle agglutination inhibition

  • R. W. Stevens

Serum alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) in hepatoma BW7756-bearing mice was measured by a new particle agglutination inhibition test employing AFP adsorbed to charcoal particles. The AFP levels and tumor weights showed nearly parallel increases to means of 2633 μg/ml and 5.2 g, respectively, 28 days after implantation. *** DIRECT SUPPORT *** A2025089 00011
