bility that the thyroid function determined the production rate of the secretory component which joins 2IgAmolecules together andprevents proteo-lytic degradation of the dimers. The data given in Table 1 also seem to preclude the possibility of abnormal J-chain production in hypothyroidism. The plasma concentration of the joining chain is normal.
