T cell subsets mediating lethal graft versus host disease: demonstration that synergy between CD4+ and CD8+ T cells is the predominant mechanism in low responder rat strains.


T cell subsets from rat strains that have been characterized as high and low responders to alloantigen were examined for their capacity to mediate lethal graft versus host disease (GVHD) across strain combinations incompatible for class I, class II, and non-MHC antigens. Inocula of 5 X 10(7) lymph node and spleen cells (LC) from low responder DA (RT1a) and… (More)
