Natural suppressor (NS) activity is defined as the ability of unprimed 'null' cells to suppress the response of lymphocytes to immunogenic and mitogenic stimuli.

They also consider NS cells as part of a 'natural' non-specific suppressor-cell family along with natural killer and natural cytotoxic cells… CONTINUE READING
