Terminal B-cell maturation and immunoglobulin (Ig) synthesis in vitro in patients with major injury.

Abstract

This study evaluated B-lymphocyte function in 30 patients following major trauma with frequent screening over a period of 21 days post-trauma. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were phenotyped with monoclonal antibodies and in vitro B-cell function was tested both for unstimulated cells (spontaneous) and following stimulation with pokeweed mitogen… (More)
