Soluble fractions of human intestinal cancer and fetal intestinal cell membranes produced delayed hypersensitivity reactions in patients with intestinal cancer. These soluble fractions and perchloric acid extracts of intestinal cancer cells were fractionated by polacrylamide-gel electrophoresis. The Gold carcinoembryonic antigen was found in a region of the gels different from that of the skin reactive antigen.
