Sera from patients with thyroid disorders or diabetes were tested for the presence of soluble immune complexes using a number of established or modified assay systems. In addition, a new and sensitive assay for the detection of 'complexes' was developed. The first assay system applied was based on the inhibition of the antibody dependent cell-mediated cytotoxic (ADCC) activity of rat spleen cells by soluble complexes which compete with antibody-coated target cells for Fe receptors on the effector cells.
