Authors studied with immunohistochemical methods the immunoglobulin content of plasma cells during the rejection of renal grafts, in different rejections, in Cyclosporin-A nephro-toxicity and in chronic interstitial nephritis, as a comparison. By far the most plasma cells occurred in chronic rejection, containing more than 80% IgG. Whereas great majority of plasma cells were IgG positive in chronic interstitial nephritis. Probably, in chronic rejection a special, secondary type humoral immune reaction has a significant role in addition to cellular immune mechanisms.
