Figure 3. Clearance of the mitogenic activity in sequential sera from patient 96/2. Peripheral blood lymphocytes were stimulated with 5% of acute-phase and sequential serum samples from patient 96/2. The mitogenic activity reached the highest point on day 1.5 after admission to hospital and dropped sharply on day 2. No substantial activity was found in sequential serum samples from day 3 on (samples 96/2–4 to 96/2–10). FCS, fetal calf serum.
