Abstract

Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells and T-cell lines and clones from individuals immunized with rabies PM vaccine were tested for the ability to recognize antigenic determinants in rabies and rabies-related viruses in an antigen-induced proliferation assay. Some, but not all, of the T cells from these individuals cross-reacted with various laboratory strains of rabies virus with rabies-related viruses such as Duvenhage and Mokola. In addition, these T cells were shown to react with epitopes of either the ribonucleoprotein or the viral glycoprotein. Rabies-specific cytotoxic T-cell responses by a CD4+ T-cell line were evident against antigenic determinants of the ribonucleoprotein and glycoprotein.
