There are many reports in the literature (1) on the purification and properties of plasma proteinase inhibitors (i.e. alpha 1-antitrypsin, alpha 2-macroglobulin) and on attempts to make antisera, but so far there have been very few adequate reports on the isolation of intracellular leukocyte proteinase inhibitors and there have been no adequate reports on a specific anti-(LNPI) serum.
