    Abstract

    Ugandans with high malarial antibody titres have been found also to have higher IgM levels. Patients with active nephrotic syndrome have higher IgM and malarial antibody levels than both controls and nephrotics in remission, an extreme increase in these factors being found in patients in whom immune complexes were present.
