Monitoring of cardiac graft recipients: comparison of in vivo activated, committed T lymphocytes in peripheral blood and in the graft.

Abstract

The proliferative and cytotoxic capacity of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) and the cytotoxic activity of lymphocytes propagated from endomyocardial biopsies (EMB) towards donor cells was used to identify in vivo activated, committed T cells. A series of 39 PBL samples and 38 EMB simultaneously taken from 20 patients after heart transplantation was… (More)
