Immunohistochemical characterization of nurse cells in normal human thymus


Lymphoepithelial complexes known as thymic “nurse” cells (TNC) have been isolated and described in the thymus of several animal species including man. Most of the investigations on TNC have been carried out in enzymatically digested thymuses in which TNC were isolated by differential sedimentation. In the present study we demonstrate TNC in… (More)
