    A modification of the hemagglutination inhibition technique for the measurement of small amounts of lactoferrin in human secretions is presented. This modification utilizes tanned human group O erythrocytes coated with bovine lactoferrin. It obviates the need to prepare human lactoferrin, which, being extracted from breast milk, is in scarce supply. The sensitivity of this method is 0.75 μg. lactoferrin per ml.
