Subset specific lymphocytotoxic activity of lupus sera was studied by a combination of selective immunofluorescence labelling and complement-mediated lysis. Most frequently death of B cells was detected. Many of the sera caused lysis of T lymphocytes; selective cytotoxicity against suppressor T cells could be observed less frequently. All the anti-T4, anti-T8 and anti-B lymphocyte antibodies proved to be cold reactive.
