T-lymphocyte subpopulations in pleural fluid and in peripheral blood from 17 patients admitted for pleural effusion were identified by E-rosette formation and delineated by monoclonal antibodies OKT3 (peripheral T-cells), OKT4 (helper/inducer cells), and OKT8 (suppressor/cytotoxic cells). We studied 13 patients with specified pleural diseases (tuberculosis, malignancies, connective tissue diseases, congestive heart failure) and 4 patients with non-specified pleural diseases. Our findings showed… CONTINUE READING
