Abstract

Under a general model the genetic heritability is 0.33 for IgA, 0.34 for IgG and 0.12 for IgM, in a Brazilian population with Chagas' disease. Cultural heritability is much smaller. The analyses suggest that, with respect to family resemblance for immunoglobulins, there is no discrepancy between this sample and those from healthy populations reanalyzed recently (Barbosa et al. 1981).
