Mechanism of recovery from acute virus infection treatment of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus infected mice with monoclonal antibodies reveals that lyt 2+ t lymphocytes mediate clearance of virus and regulate the antiviral antibody response



Mechanism of recovery from acute virus infection treatment of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus infected mice with monoclonal antibodies reveals that lyt 2+ t lymphocytes mediate clearance of virus and regulate the antiviral antibody response



Journal of Virology 61(6): 1867-1874



After intravenous infection of mice, lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus multiplied in spleens and livers, attaining highest concentrations on days 4 to 6. The subsequent clearance was as rapid, and 8 to 10 days after inoculation, infectivity was usually below detectability. During the effector phase of virus elimination, both cytotoxic T-cell (CTL) activity and the number of cells producing antiviral antibodies were high. Monoclonal antibodies directed against T lymphocytes and T-lymphocyte subsets were inoculated once intravenously 5, 6, or 7 days after infection of the animals, and the effects on antiviral immune responses, as well as on elimination of virus from the organs, were determined. Treatment with anti-Thy-1 and anti Lyt-2 antibodies blocked elimination of the virus and profoundly diminished the activity of spleen CTLs but reduced the antibody response partially (anti-Thy-1) or increased it (anti-Lyt-2). In contrast, treatment with the anti-L3T4 antibody had essentially no effect on either virus elimination or CTL response but abolished antibody production. We conclude that Lyt-2+ (cytotoxic-suppressive) T lymphocytes are needed for elimination of the virus and also regulate the humoral response but that antiviral antibodies are not essential for control of the infection.
