Mycobacterial fractions, some of which are associated with the cell envelope of Mycobacterium avium serovar 4, were assessed for their ability to affect various immunological functions of human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBM). Treatment of PBM with a total lipid fraction derived from M. avium serovar 4 resulted in a significant suppression of lymphoproliferative responsiveness to phytohemagglutinin stimulation at concentrations not affecting cell viability.
