A prospective study has been carried out in rhesus monkeys to investigate the influence of blood-transfusions on kidney allograft survival. Unrelated animals matched for 2 or 3 antigens of the A and B locus of the major histocompatibility complex were given five consecutive blood-transfusions before transplantation and received conventional(More)
A monoclonal antibody FN18 is described, which is specific for mature rhesus monkey T lymphocytes. It defines a cell surface antigen, composed of two polypeptide chains with a molecular mass of 22 and 27 kDa. In view of these and other similarities with the human T3 or CD3 antigen, it was designated as RhT3. Expression, distribution and certain functions of(More)
The serology and genetics of11 new cell surface alloantigens of rhesus monkeys are described: They are controlled by the mamor histocompatibility complex but are distinct from the conventional serologically defined (SD) antigens ofRhL-A. The new specifications are termed "Ia-like" because ofserological, immunocytological and other characteristics(More)
Rhesus monkeys were tested in vitro for their cellular immune response after infection with vaccinia virus, employing lymphocyte preparations from various lymphoid tissues. Although virus-infected target cells were lysed by lymphoid cells from immunized, but not from uninfected, rhesus monkeys, we could neither find evidence for MHC-restricted T cells nor(More)
Methylcholanthrene was administered intradermally to adult normal and neonatally thymectomized mice. The incidence, latency period, growth rate, and histological type of the developing tumors were not significantly different for thymectomized mice as compared with those for controls. The antigenicity of the tumors varied in both groups, but the percentage(More)
