Previous investigations from this laboratory, using a latex particle agglutination technique for demonstrating a circulating antihuman kidney antibody (AHK) in glomerulonephritis have shown the presence of this antibody only in patients evidencing glomerulonephritis. The present study represents an evaluation of the prognostic value of this antikidney antibody in patients with glomerulonephritis. In 581 patients examined who had a variety of renal or immunological diseases, 107 patients demonstrated a positive antikidney antibody titer. A significant titer could not be demonstrated in patients having diseases other than glomerulonephritis or in 25 normal young adults. A significant titer was found in 66% of
