Authors investigated the in vitro effect of α2-HS-glycoprotein on the lymphoblastic transformation and interleukin-2 production. The observations were made on the peripheral blood lymphocytes of healthy persons, on those of women taking oral contraceptives and on those of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus. The α2-HS-glycoprotein inhibited the mitogen responses both in physiologic and in the halved concentrations. The inhibition of the interleukin-2 production seemed less remarkable.
