Abstract

When lymphocytes from individuals ingesting vitamin E were used as responding cells in the mixed lymphocyte culture (MLC) the proliferative response was normal indicating that T lymphocyte reactivity to allogeneic antigen was undisturbed. However, the use of lymphocytes from individuals receiving vitamin E as stimulating cells in the MLC resulted in a diminished proliferative response suggesting that large doses of vitamin E may effect B cells and/or macrophages as they interacted with T lymphocytes.
