Superantigen-induced human CD4+ helper/killer T cell phenomenon. Selective induction of Th1 helper/killer T cells and application to tumor immunotherapy.


Human CD4+ T cells activated with staphylococcal enterotoxin A (SEA) were fractionated by Percoll discontinuous density gradient centrifugation to enrich SEA-reactive CD4+ T cells. The SEA-reactive CD4+ T cells showed significant cytotoxicity, so-called superantigen-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity, against SEA-coated class II-positive tumor cells… (More)
