Plasma Cell Surface Antigen in Thermal Burns, Carcinogenesis and Primary Immunodeficiencies
Previous studies have shown that human B-lymphocytes (B-cells) possess a receptor for the binding of the Fc portion of certain immunoglobulin (Ig) classes, or possess Ig as a surface marker (1, 5). Evidence has also been presented that T-lymphocytes (T-cells) may also bear Ig receptors (7), but more widely accepted is the fact that these T-cells form spontaneous rosettes (E-rosettes) when mixed with sheep erythrocytes in vitro (5,10). These surface markers have allowed the identification and enumeration of normal lymphoid cells, but may not be sufficient to fully identify the immunologic nature of certain disease states in man (9).
