In 10 untreated patients suffering from acute bullous pemphigoid the number of peripheral blood T cells (CD 3), T suppressor (CD 8) and T helper cells (CD 4) as well as activation antigens (DR and Tac) bearing lymphocytes was evaluated by monoclonal antibodies. While the pan-T cell population (CD 3) and T suppressor subpopulation (CD 8) were normal, the T(More)
The kinetics of HLA-DR antigen expression by human peripheral blood monocytes during cultivation in vitro was studied. Immediately after separation by glass adherence, about 60% of monocytes expressed DR antigens as judged by indirect fluorescence staining with a monoclonal antibody (BL-DR/1). Monocytes carefully depleted of lymphocytes, gradually lost(More)
This paper describes a new and easy to handle reusable minifermenter for high-density culture of hybridoma and other cells. The culture apparatus is composed of two modules: a 40 ml disposable cell culture and antibody production chamber (the 'production module') and a 550 ml medium reservoir (the 'supply module'). The two modules are separated from each(More)
Circulating lymphocytes were enumerated in 25 patients with Crohn's disease and in 43 healthy donors by immunofluorescent staining using monoclonal antibodies for T cell surface phenotypic markers (CD 3, CD 4, CD 8) or for surface immunoglobulin of B cells (mu-chain). Proportions of peripheral T cells and percentages of T cell subsets in Crohn's disease(More)
Studies were conducted into the incidence of secondary follicles in individuals without autoimmune disease. Thymic tissue specimens were obtained from 20 children, aged between 6 months and 14 years who had undergone cardiac surgery and had been chosen at random. These specimens were immunohistologically investigated, using monoclonal anti-B cell antibodies(More)
The report provides a procedure for labelling of monoclonal antibodies (moab's) with colloidal gold particles (mean diameter 30 or 40 nm). This procedure was exemplified for the moab's BL-T2, BL-Ig-L/1, and BL-Ia/1, which label mature T (and some populations of B) lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, and HLA class II antigen bearing lymphocytes, respectively. Each(More)
The dynamics of affinity of anti-DNP antibodies of carps immunized with T cell independent DNP-Ficoll was studied during the immune response. The intrinsic affinity (KO) of antibodies to monovalent epsilon-DNP-lysine is 10(5)--10(6)M-1 and does not change significantly in course of the immunisation. The affinity of tetrameric IgM antibodies to multivalent(More)
