Lymphocytes from peripheral blood (PB) and synovial fluid (SF) from 21 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 18 patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) were studied with respect to T cell phenotypes using monoclonal antibodies in a rosette assay. The percentage of HLA-DR positive T cells was counted in PB and SF using indirect immunofluorescence. Suppressor cell activity of T cells from PB and SF was investigated by measuring the immunoglobulin production by pokeweed mitogen… CONTINUE READING
