Abstract. Peripheral blood lymphocytes obtained from normal volunteers were capable of lysing Rh(D)‐positive human erythrocytes in the presence of IgG anti‐Rh(D) antibodies. The percent cytotoxicity produced by peripheral blood lymphocytes was approximately equivalent to that produced by unfractionated peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Neither peripheral blood mononuclear cells nor peripheral blood lymphocytes lysed Rh(D)‐negative human erythrocytes in the presence of IgG anti‐Rh(D) antibody.
