Abstract:

Hemagglutination-inhibition HI procedures for the detection and measurement of several abused drugs have been further developed and evaluated. Tests for morphine and for methadone have been applied to more than 30,000 urine specimens. The results of further studies on sporadic recurrent excretion of morphine are reported. Also presented are data which illustrate individual-specific responses to drug protein conjugates. Progress toward the use of immunoabsorbants for concentration and purification of drugs in biological fluids is also reported.
