Normal lymphocytes respond to the presence of allogenic lymphocytes in cultures with a high uptake of 3H-thymidine. We studied the interaction of chronic lymphatic leukemia (CLL) lymphocytes with normal allogenic lymphocytes, using the oneway, mixed leukocyte culture technique of Bach, with Ficoll-Hypaque gradient, to harvest lymphocytes. The lymphocytes of 11 patients with this disease were tested separately against those of 4 unrelated normal control persons. Contamination by nonmononuclear cells was uniformly less than 5%, and viability (eosin dye exclusion) was greater than 90%. In all 11 patients an impaired responsiveness was found. The mean response of CLL lymphocytes to those
