The present presumptive diagnosis of viral hepatitis is based on epidemiologic, clinical, and nonspecific laboratory data; in most cases it can be substantiated by liver biopsy. Detection of Australian antigen may possibly provide a better means for both specific diagnosis and identification of the hepatitis carrier but presently lacks sensitivity. This report presents preliminary observations of serum protein and glycoprotein alterations which may be helpful in the detection of viral hepatitis and the hepatitis carrier. Serum fractions obtained by gel chromatography on Sephadex G-200 were further separated by zone electrophoresis on cellulose acetate. Identical strips were stained for protein and
