Abstract

Lymphocytes from pulmonary tuberculosis patients and healthy controls showed identical proliferative responses to mitogen (PHA) and antigen (PPD) on Day ‘O’ (DO), Day-2 (D2) and Day-7 (D7) of culture. Also, there was no suppression of PHA induced lymphocyte proliferation in the presence of culture supernatants of pulmonary tuberculosis patient’s mononuclear cells.
