Abstract

THE increasing success of liver transplantation in recent years has provided an experimental model to study and document the hepatic synthesis of many plasma proteins. 1 2 3 4 5 The normal hepatobiliary tract has not been regarded as a major source of antibody, 6 , 7 aside from the enteric IgA secreted from plasma into the biliary tree. 8 Liver transplantation affords the opportunity to study the production of antibody to red cells.
