We studied 39 patients with thromboangiitis obliterans to determine their cellular and humoral immune responses to native human collagen Type I and Type III, which are constituents of blood vessels. Cell-mediated sensitivity to these collagens was measured by an antigen-sensitive thymidine-incorporation assay. The mean stimulation index--the ratio of thymidine incorporation in the presence of antigen to that in its absence--with both Type I and Type III collagens used as antigens was… CONTINUE READING
