A repeat lung biopsy sample showed large abnormal lymphoid cells clustering in pink-white nodules around and within blood vessel walls.
A biopsy showed that the patient had a diffuse, upper dermal and epidermal infiltration of moderate-sized lymphoid cells. Further testing revealed that 60% of the isolated T cells were of one immunotype: dim staining for CD3, strongly staining for CD8, and positive for CD 16/56.
Caption: Figure 3: Hematoxylin-eosin stain of a section through the center of the nodule (a) shows numerous confluent lymphoid follicles composed of large, reactive lymphocytes with intervening smaller lymphoid cells. An immunostain for the B cell marker CD20 (b) shows that the follicles are composed of B cells, while the stain for the T cell marker CD3 (c) shows that the mantle zone and interfollicular areas have predominantly T cells, typical of benign lymphoid tissue.
In addition, RA induces the homing of innate immune cells, such as innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) [8] besides regulatory and effector T and B cells, to the gut [9-11].

Our results indicate that IL-33 contributes to the augmented response to [O.sub.3] in obese mice and that innate lymphoid cells type 2 (ILC2), important targets of IL-33 (Barlow et al.
Lymphoid cells were separated from blood over Ficoll-paque[R] (phamacia Fine Chemicals, Upsalla, Sweden) and the lymphoid organs by teasing in sterile-phosphate buffered saline (PBS) supplemented with 5% by volume of fetal calf serum (FCS) using a sterile pair of forceps.
Recent evidence from our laboratory and others, however, indicates that by employing more sensitive nucleic acid detection tests, low levels of HCV RNA can be identified in sera, lymphoid cells, and hepatic tissue for years after apparent complete recovery from hepatitis C.
In the present work, we determined the specific in vivo effects, with time of administration, of one such compound, a neutral arabinogalactan from larch not only on immune (lymphoid) cells, but also on natural killer (NK) lymphoid cells, as well as a variety of other hemopoietic cells in both the bone marrow and spleen of healthy, young adult mice.

Especially, the RAG-1 (approximately 102-fold), as the lymphocyte-specific recombination enzyme, plays a crucial role in lymphoid cell development.
Among the innate lymphoid cell subsets, IL-22-producing group 3 innate lymphoid cells constitutively present in the intestine of healthy mice stimulate IL-[22R.sup.+] epithelial cells to produce anti-microbial peptides that may help to physically contain intra-tissue habituated Alcaligenes species within the PPs.
