Cold reactive lymphocytotoxic antibodies in pulmonary tuberculosis: correlation with disease activity and HLA.

Abstract

Cold reactive lymphocytotoxic antibodies (LCA) are more reactive in cold than at 37 degrees C and occur following infection, immunization or vaccination and in various autoimmune diseases. In the present study, LCA activity against T and B-lymphocytes has been investigated in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB), their various clinical sub-groups and… (More)
