From a typical of 1 paper in all of the prior 3 Symposiums, the explosive curiosity in cerebral amyloidosis has ended in the presentation of 12 papers in this topic within the current quantity. The genetically predisposed familial amyloidotic procedures, corresponding to the polyneuropathies and familial Mediterranean fever have additionally inspired ex­ tensive and fascinating investigations that have printed the remarkable impact of a unmarried amino acid substitution in reworking a typical protein into. a deadly "amyloidogenic" one.

Production of monoclonal antibodies to human SAA and AA.

Recently it has been shown by several investigators that SAA can be separated into several fractions by ion exchange chromatography [10, 11]. In our study pooled human SAA was separated in at least eight fractions by the same method. Individual differences between the SAA proteins from different patients might explain some of the heterogeneity, but can not account for all SAA variants, as SAA protein from only two patients was pooled. The presence of other proteins in some of the ion exchange chromatography fractions of SAA has been described [11].

The fibrils were solubilized with guanidine-HC1 and subjected to gel filtration. Reaggregation studies were performed by dialyzing the fractions obtained, separately or in combinations, against acetic acid.
