Résumé : The quantitified lymphocyte response to phytohemagglutinin (PHA) was investigated in 56 control subjects, classed according to age and sex, in 29 insulin dependent (IDD) and 8 non insulin dependent diabetics. In 9 cases one way mixed lymphocyte cultures (MLC) were performed using mixed lymphocytes from IDD and paired controls. In the controls, a reduction of the response to PHA was observed with ageing; this was more marked in women than in men. The diabetics gave a greatly impaired response to PHA but only a slightly depressed response in MLC. These anomalies are not influenced by age but by the severity of the diabetes.
