Method In Table 1, they list the average amount of IgG for males and females. azim58 averaged the two numbers to get (1120+1060)*"mg"/"dL"=1090*"mg"/"dL". He then used this number to determine the number of IgG molecules in one milliliter as presented in comments below.
Comments Table 1 on page 4: Serum immunoglobulin (Ig) levels in relation to sex, alcohol consumption, and smoking. The average IgG concentration for males and females is 1090 mg/dl. Some calculations result in 4.01E16 molecules/mL: (1090*"mg"/(1*"dL"))*((10*"dL")/(1*"L"))*((1*"L")/(1000*"mL"))*((1*"g")/(1090*"mg"))*((1*"mol")/(150000*"g"))*(6.02E23*"molecules"/(1*"mol"))=4.01E16 molecules/mL
