By means of crossed immunoelectrophoresis with intermediate gel containing a known amount of aluminium hydroxide the adsorption of the individual human serum proteins to the aluminium hydroxide was determined. The extent of adsorption varies considerably with the particular protein and is independent of the net charge, the molecular weight and the carbohydrate content of the proteins. The possible use of the method in connection with diagnosis and immunotherapy in human allergology is outlined.
