Abstract:

This report describes the second phase of a research program aimed at the utilization of multicomponent analysis by field ionization mass spectrometry for diagnosis of infectious diseases. During this phase it has been demonstrated that infectious hepatitis can be diagnosed with a high degree of confidence through analysis of the molecular weight profile of the acidic metabolites in urine. New sample preparation techniques, instrumentation, and computerized statistical analysis have been developed during this phase of the program.
