Abstract

Thoracic duct lymphocytes from patients receiving thoracic duct drainage as a pretransplant therapy were examined for cell surface markers. Patients followed over the drainage time period showed a variable but decreasing percentage of E-rosette-positive cells in the lymph fluid. A substantial percentage of these E-rosette-positive cells also had C3 receptors on their cell surface. Reactions of the whole lymphocytes with a heteroantisera to human B-lymphocyte antigens reflected the increasing proportion of B cells in the sample, but also indicated that a fraction of the T cells have Ia-like antigens on their surface. Some cells may have all 3 surface marker characteristics. Significance of these cells with respect to graft survival is discussed.
