Reduced numbers of T cells with Fc receptors for IgG [T(G) cells] are present in blood samples of patients with respiratory allergic disease, mainly those with severe symptoms. T(G) cells have been previously shown to be suppressor in the pokeweed mitogen- (PWM) dependent B cell differentiation. T cells with Fc receptor for IgM, which help immunoglobulin production, are in a normal range. After specific hyposensitization, resulting in a sharp improvement of clinical symptoms, T(G) cell subset reached normal values.
