"Nonspecific" immunoenhancing T cells in tumor-bearing mice include anti-idiotypic subsets.


Splenocytes from DBA/2 mice inoculated 3 wk earlier with syngeneic P815 mastocytoma tumor cells produce increased numbers of antibody plaque-forming cells (PFC) when stimulated with either sheep red blood cells (SRBC) or phosphorylcholine (PC) on Streptococcus pneumoniae R36a in vitro. The nature of this nonspecific hyperreactivity was investigated in mixed… (More)
