We have characterized some subset of T-lymphocytes by monoclonal antibodies in 30 patients affected by hepatic cirrhosis. The OKT3 cells was significantly decreased so as OKT8. The OKT4/OKT8 ratio was significantly raised. The reduction of OKT3 was similar to that observed by other Authors. Our other results have a correlation with the alcoholic etiology of the observed disease.
