Thirteen healthy subjects and 20 hemodialysis patients were studied to observe the delayed hypersensitivity skin tests (DHSTs) and phytohemagglutinin (PHA)-stimulating lymphocyte blastogenesis. Significant differences were observed between the groups. Controls had a higher proportion of positive skin reaction than hemodialysis patients in relation to Escherichia coli (p<0.01) and tuberculin (PPD) (p<0.05). Regarding lymphocyte blastogenesis stimulated by phytohemagglutinin (PHA), cell… CONTINUE READING
