    Abstract

    The distribution of chromium (Cr) in fractionated serum was studied from peripheral blood of patients with and without Cr-containing Cobalt-base alloy total joint replacements: 1)10 patients with cobalt-chromium-base alloy prostheses; and 2) 10 age-matched controls without implants. Two molecular weight ranges were found to primarily bind Cr (at ≈70 kD and ≈140–180 kD) in patients with Cobalt-base alloy total joint replacements. This pattern of concentration-dependent metal-protein binding within molecular weight ranges that include immunoglobulins warrants further investigation.
