Abstract

Leucocyte migration inhibition (LMI) activity and delayed type of hypersensitivity (DTK) were studied in active, relapse and treated cases of pulmonary tuberculosis. Active and relapse cases had significant decrease in leucocyte migration inhibition activity, and delayed type of hypersensitivity. A close correlation between leucocyte migration inhibition activity and delayed type of hypersensitivity was observed. Allergic patients had abnormal in vitro cellular immune responses.
