|Resumen : ||We analyzed T cell responses through the CD3 activation pathway in a group of chronic HBV carriers. PBMC stimulated with the mAb OKT3 showed higher proliferative response in HBV-DNA(-) carriers compared to HBV-DNA(+) carriers and to controls. In contrast, no differences in proliferative responses were observed between HBV-DNA(-) carriers and controls in cell cultures stimulated with immobilized 64.1 mAb (SPB-64.1) which induces proliferation in the absence of monocytes. We further examined T cell responses in the presence of monocytes and their soluble factors to immobilized OKT3 mAb (SPB-OKT3). Purified T cells did not proliferate to SPB-OKT3. When autologous monocytes were added, higher proliferative response, IL-2 production, and IL-2 receptor expression were observed in HBV-DNA(-) carriers than in controls. An enhanced cell proliferation was also obtained when monocyte supernatants were added to T cells cultured with SPB-OKT3. Moreover, when IL-6 alone or combined with IL-1 was added to SPB-OKT3-stimulated T cell cultures, a significantly higher increase in T cell proliferation was detected in HBV-DNA(-) carriers. Our results thus show a T cell hyperreactivity to accessory signals from monocytes (mainly IL-6) in HBV-DNA(-) carriers, that is probably related to an ongoing viral clearance.|
