Abstract

To the Editor: In the report by Tötterman et al. (Jan. 1 issue),1 there is an error in their interpretation of our studies of circulating activated T-lymphocyte subsets in untreated Graves' disease, in which we used two-color immunofluorescent laser-flow cytometry.2 Tötterman et al. state that in patients with untreated Graves' disease, we observed an increase not only in activated T helper/inducer cells but also in T suppressor/cytotoxic cells. In fact, however, our report demonstrated that in comparison to controls, patients with untreated Graves' disease had a significant increase in activated T helper/inducer (Ia+ Leu-3a+) cells and a reciprocal reduction…
