Abstract

The authors sought to determine whether measurement of plasma Müllerian inhibiting substance (MIS) is a suitable substitute for measurement of serum MIS. Eighteen samples of serum and plasma were examined that were drawn simultaneously. Levels of MIS were measured with an ELISA kit, and plasma levels were studied in parallel to serum samples. A 98.5% correlation was found between serum and plasma MIS values.
