Cell Interactions in Immune Responses: Role of T Lymphocytes
It is well established that the thymus exerts a widespread influence, not only in the development of immune capacity, but also in the regulation of immune functions. Once differentiated, T cells may become involved in controlling a wide variety of cellular and humoral immune responses by producing quantitative as well as qualitative modifications. Collaboration between lymphocytes has now been documented in both cell-mediated and humoral immunity, i.e. between various subsets of T lymphocytes as well as between T and B cells, as will be evident from the various papers in this Symposium. The T cells can either promote or suppress the function of other lymphocytes, depending on the circumstances, and macrophages often play an essential role in the mediation of lymphocyte interactions.
