Rats were injected intraperitoneally from birth on with a mouse monoclonal antibody (R73) to a constant determinant of the rat T cell receptor (TcR)2. Throughout the observation period (6 months), TcR2+ cells in peripheral lymphoid organs and blood were absent in treated animals with the exception of few (less than 10%) cells with a tenfold reduced TcR2(More)

We raised the question whether T cells carrying the gamma/delta T cell receptor (TcR), reactive or not to mycobacterial antigens, are involved in the pathogenesis of AA. For this purpose, T cells bearing the TcR(More)
