A hybrid cell formed by the fusion of a mouse spleen cell with a mouse myeloma cell secretes an lgM class antibody. The antibody is useful as a preparative reagent in the isolation of three pro- teins, molecular weights 45,000, 49,000 and 53,000, from the parasite Trichinella spiralis and is also useful as a direct diagnostic reagent is a competitive serodiagnostic test.

The present invention provides strongly anti- genic tumor-specific substances (also cellular material containing said strongly antigenic tumor-specific substances) prepared by radiofre- quency or microwave electromagnetic radiation, acting on cancer tissue or cancer cells of known pathohistologic character. Said substances and also cellular material containing said substances are characterized by such sensitizing antigenic qualities that when they are contacted with a composition of naturally cancer-sensitized lymphocytes taken from a host having patho- histologically related cancer, then said lympho- cytes produce and exude lymphokine. The invention further provides diagnostic tests for cancer and compositions which contain or utilize said strongly-antigenic cancer-specific sub- stances.

Partial thromboplastin time (PTT) is deter- mined for monitoring and controlling heparin therapy with a test kit having increased sensitivity to heparin. Increased sensitivity is ob- tained by including with reagents in the test kit an organic sulfuric acid or salt thereof such as dodecylbenzenesulfuric acid£13 sodium salt and/or an organic sulfuric acid ester or salt thereof such as +PG,2 sodium laurylsul- fate. + RE
