Circulating mononuclear cells from a patient developing severe aplastic anemia during the course of non-A, non-B hepatitis were found to be virtually entirely composed of in vivo activated suppressor T cells (Ia+T8+). These cells were used to establish a new permanent cell line, termed SMAA, by using phytohemagglutinin, Ebstein-Barr virus-transformed… CONTINUE READING
