The present study shows that tetanus toxoid (tet) booster releases to the human circulation 2 subsets of specific plasma cells (PCs), as defined by phenotype and morphology, which clearly differed in the staining capacity of their cytoplasmic antibodies (Abs) with fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)-labeled tet-fragment C (tetC). These cells, called tetCHIGH and tetCINT PCs according to their either high or intermediate FITC-tetC staining capacity, exhibit similar rapid temporary kinetics in the… CONTINUE READING
