Titre of antibodies against elastin degradation product (kappa-elastin) was measured in patients with atherogenic types of hyperlipoproteinemia. The hemagglutination technique was used. A significant decrease in titres of the tested antibodies was found. It was the most prominent in IIa, III and IIb types of hyperlipoproteinemia and rather mild in IV type. The authors attempted to explain causes of antibodies titres decrease in tested patients and relate their results with those of other authors.
