The virus-activated suppressor cell hypothesis in experimental and human rheumatic diseases.

Abstract

I suggest that many of the features of the autoimmune diseases may be explained by an alteration in the immunoregulatory balance of various T lymphocyte populations by virus-activated suppressor cells. The evidence for this hypothesis is presented and evaluated in adjuvant disease in rats, NZB/W disease in mice, and in human autoimmune diseases.
