Abstract

It has been shown previously [1] that thymus-derived cells proliferate in lymphoid tissues after the injection of sheep erythrocytes. Thymus-derived cells do not, however, form demonstrable antibody [2], and the significance of the mitotic activity is uncertain. It was therefore decided to investigate the response of thymus-derived cells to a number of different antigenic stimuli.
