In a copyrighted story, the N'ews said Joe Thomas, who has rhe nation's highest known concentration of a rare blood antibody called ami-Lewis B, nas signed a contract with a national bsoiog-cai supply firm after six months of negotia- tions. Anti-Lewis B is a blood protein which has major uses in tracking dowii bad reactions to blood transfusions and in human genetics research, the News said in a story by staff writer Stephen Cain. "it's hard to believe." Thomas was quoted as saying. "You're an average workicg man making a living sad then someone tells you you can lie someone tells yon you can lie down for a few hours, give some blood and make a year. "But I've signed the contract, so T guess u's Thomas said. "I appreciate the money bui I really like the idea of the blood being used rather than misused. I've been helped by a lot of people in rny life but I've never been in a position to help too many other people." According to the Thomas' signing of rhe contract with a of American Hospital Suppiv Co.. Dace. Fla.. ends a race between a Red oifiC'al ar.d 's for Thorr.aj" blood. Dr. Frar.k Ellis, r.ow head of the Southeast Michigan Cross Wood prograjs, spotted the antibody during a test of Thomas' blood seven years age at Wayne County General Hospital. "Joe's was the best anti- Lewis 3 serum to show UD in 28 Ellis said. Thomas earned some raoney for 10 or more donations but stopped going because the procedure was uncomfortable and the travel inconvenient. The news story said the national supply of the antibody was exhausted after two vears and professional biood procu- rers began a hunt for Tfcomas that including hiring private detectives and possible pirating of Red Cross lists of rare donors. Cain said Ellis was unable to pay Thomas for his biood because of the Red Cross' tax exempt status precluded buying blood for resale. So Ellis set np a plan in the last eight months to sell directly to a national biological supply firm, and avoid middlemen. Then Thomas was located at Chrysler Corp. through his social security number and re- tested Sampies of his blood were mailed to five iirins with invitations for bids. The first shipment wii! be shspped next week, the News said, after Thomas began procedure at a Jocai hospital that will let him safely a quart of plasma every week indefinitely. The company bid about a quart for Thomas's bicods and estimated i; would want about worth during rhe vear.
