Abstract

The combined effects of cortisol and agents acting through a cyclic AMP-mediated mechanism have been studied in cultures of highly purified human peripheral lymphocytes. Incubation with prostaglandin E1 (PGE1), dibutyryl cyclic AMP, or cortisol results in a concentration-dependent inhibition of [3H]-thymidine incorporation by both unstimulated and phytohemagglutinin (PHA)-stimulated lymphocytes, and PHA-induced morphologic transformation is prevented. When cortisol and PGE1 (or dibutyryl cyclic AMP) are added together to lymphocyte cultures, enhanced inhibitory effects are observed.
