Abstract : The invention provides a reaction product of chrysotile asbestos with an antigenic serum protein, preferably albumin, that has particular utility as an antigen in producing antibody to asbestos. The reaction product of asbestos with an antigenic serum protein also can be used in a method for producing an antibody toward asbestos by immunizing a laboratory animal with the reaction product, of asbestos and a serum protein, allowing it to remain in the blood of the animal for a sufficient period of time and thereafter recovering antibody globulins from the laboratory animal.
