    The levels of IgG and IgM antiglobulins in the sera of Nigerian patients with seropositive rheumatoid arthritis, seronegative arthritis, and Reiter's syndrome have been studied using an immunosorbent of glutaraldehyde insolubilized human IgG. No conclusion could be reached in the case of IgM antiglobulins because of the relatively high threshold of detectability in the quantitation procedure, but all groups of patients had significantly higher levels of IgG antiglobulins than did a group of healthy Nigerians.
