Modified polystyrene resins containing sulphonate groups and tyrosyl sulphamide or tyrosyl methyl ester sulphamide groups have been investigated with respect to their potential for selective binding of anti-Factor VIII inhibitory antibodies from plasma. Adsorption of total immunoglobulin G and of a monoclonal antibody to Factor VIII was measured following addition of the radioiodinated proteins to normal plasma, plasma depleted of Factor VIII by adsorption on a resin coupled to anti-Factor VIII antibody, and haemophiliac plasma containing various levels of inhibitory anti-Factor VIII antibody. Depletion of anti-Factor VIII antibody from the haemophiliac plasmas by incubation with the resins was also measured by Bethesda assay. The modified resins and their corresponding unmodified "controls' showed similar binding of total immunoglobulin G. However, only resins containing either sulphonate or a combination of sulphonate and tyrosyl sulphamide groups showed evidence of selective adsorption of anti-Factor VIII antibody from plasma.
