Abstract
Non-human primates have been used to study immune function to a much lesser extent than readily available strains of inbred rodents. Nevertheless, in situations where it might be desirable, but impossible, to study human immune responses in vivo, lower primates could provide an acceptable alternative. In order to extent the knowledge of T- and B-lymphocyte function in lower primates, the common marmoset Callithrix jaccus was used as an experimental model. The functional similarities between this species and humans at the level of T-B co-operation in the antibody response were examined, and xenoreactive T-lymphocyte clones were obtained from marmoset spleen cells...
