    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    The obligate biotrophic fungus Golovinomyces orontii causes powdery mildew (PM) disease on its host Arabidopsis thaliana. Most research on the G. orontii- Arabidopsis pathosystem uses rosette leaves as experimental materials, so little is known about the behavior of G. orontii on other...
