T Cell Neoplasia

  • Ian J. Forbes

T cell neoplasms are monoclonal populations which often produce lymphokines influencing a wide range of cell types. Lymphokines are molecules with the capacity to activate or affect the function of B cells, macrophages, bone marrow stem cells and, in the case of interleukin 1 (IL-1), connective tissue and certain neurons involved in the genesis of fever.
