Influenza virus infection in vitro depresses accessory cell function of human peripheral blood-derived macrophages (PBM phi) for lymphocyte proliferative responses, but effects on such functions of alveolar macrophages (AlvM phi) have not been described. AlvM phi were obtained by bronchoalveolar lavage from normal young volunteers, and the effects of influenza virus infection of AlvM phi and autologous PBM phi were compared by measuring the accessory support provided by these cells for… CONTINUE READING
