An immunoadsorbent for the isolation of purine-specific antibody has been synthesized. The technique is applicable for isolating antibody to any purine or pyrimidine capable of being converted to a derivative which can be coupled to amine groups. The recovery of antibody from a serum sample is better than 82 percent, and the precipitability of the isolated antibody is as high as 89 percent.
