Lymphocytes from thymectomized rats: immunologic, proliferative, and metabolic properties

W O Rieke


Thoracic duct lymphocytes from neonatally thymectomized Lewis rats fail to produce runt disease in newborn Brown Norway rats when injected with up to ten times the number of normal lymphocytes needed to cause runting. The immunologically deficient lymphocytes appear, however, to confer tolerance, and at least some enlarge and divide when stimulated in vitro with phytohemagglutinin, or xenogeneic or allogeneic cells. Small lymphocytes from thymectomized animals have defective RNA metabolism as judged by a marked impairment in their ability to incorporate uridine-5-H(3) or cytidine-H(3) in vitro.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.

Cellular Immunometabolism

Immunometabolism involves not only the way metabolites are digested by the immune system, but the way in which they can alter the pathway of the immune system. These responses occur in day-to-day healthy cell functioning, but can result in diseases, such as autoimmune disorders. Discover the latest research on cellular immunometabolism here.
