    Abstract

    The rosette inhibition test was performed on lymphocytes from five patients who received viable allogeneic skin grafts after a severe burn injury. Serial tests were done to ascertain whether a change in the minimal inhibitory concentration of antihuman lymphocyte globulin needed to inhibit rosette formation by 25% was specifically associated with rejection of such a graft. No such change was observed.
