Proliferating T cells are necessary for an accelerated rejection of a skin allograft. Irradiation of the host will not alter the ability of sensitized cells to cause this accelerated rejection. Neither does host splenectomy have an effect on these cytotoxic cells. Only host treatment with carrageenan, a macrophage inhibitor, can abrogate the effect of these specifically sensitized cells.
