    Using the E rosette test and its modification with theophylline, we have studied T regulatory lymphocytes in various forms of systemic scleroderma. Mean percentages of active rosette-forming cells (ARFC) as well as the fraction resistant to theophylline incubation (ARFC-res) were significantly...

    Peripheral blood lymphocytes from some of patients with mycosis fungoides disease showed decreased ability to form rosettes with sheep erythrocytes. This decreased percentage of E-rosette forming cells could be normalized when those cells were incubated in culture for 20 hr. Since these data led...

    Thirteen patients with oral erythema multiforme were assessed immunologically by skin testing and in vitro tests (lymphocyte transformation and rosettes). The results suggested a possible defect in cell-mediated immunity for most patients in this group.

    E rosette formation by peripheral blood T lymphocytes was studied during photochemotherapy (PUVA) of psoriasis. Prior to PUVA treatment the percentage of E rosette forming cells was found to be markedly decreased in patients with active psoriasis, whereas it was normal in those with inactive...

    This article focuses on antilymphocyte serum. The immunosuppressive activity of ALS appears to result from a selective depletion of lymphocytes of the recirculating pool, but the precise mechanism of this action is still not clear. Since the rosette inhibition test forms a reliable in vitro...

    Background: Clinical evidence indicates that late acute renal failure (ARF) predicts high mortality in severely burned patients but the pathophysiology of late ARF remains undefined. This study was designed to test the hypothesis that sustained reactive oxygen species (ROS) induced late ARF in a...

    The distribution of thymus-derived (T) and bone marrow-derived (B) lymphocytes in 100 patients with psoriasis were studied by the rosetting techniques. Depression of the number of T lymphocytes forming spontaneous rosettes with sheep erythrocytes (E rosettes) occurred in 66% of patients, whereas...

    Introduction: Leishmaniosis is regarded as a serious public health issue either by its magnitude, morbidity or mortality. Depending on Leishmania species disease ranges from cutaneous, which is relatively confined and controlled, until a progressive and fatal visceral disease [4]. In order to...

    Several parameters of humoral and cell-mediated immunity were studied in patients undergoing three weekly hemodialyses for chronic renal failure. The average period of dialysis was 27 months (range, 2 to 76 months). Serum levels of immunoglobulins G, A, and M were assessed by...
