Cross-reacting factor IX material (CRM) was immunologically detected in the plasma of 38 normal individuals and 21 out of 22 haemophilia B patients using a rabbit antibody to factor IX. The same reacting material was detected in only nine of these patients using a human antibody. These results indicate that the plasma of the majority of haemophilia B patients contains a protein-lacking biological activity but having antigenic determinants in common with normal factor IX.
