英文摘要

This study was undertaken to investigate the phenotypic and functional status of T lymphocytes of human fetuses from early second- to third-trimester. Cord blood samples were obtained from 19 healthy human fetuses (gestation weeks: 18-36), by cordocentesis, and 16 term newborns (gestation weeks 37-42). Maternal and unrelated male blood samples were also taken as controls. Percentage of lymphocytes in fetal white blood cells was 79.3%, reducing to 40% by term birth, much higher than that of adults. Cord blood mononuclear cells (CBMC), prepared by density gradient centrifugation followed by lysis of erythrocytes, were stained using PE- or FITC-labelled monoclonal Abs and analysed by flow cytometry. The frequencies of CD3(+) T cells in fetal (40.1%) and neonatal (42.4%) CBMC were significantly lower than that of men (59.6%) and pregnant women (53.6%). Proportions of CD8(+) T cells (9.5%), gammadelta-T cells (0.5%) and NK cells (4.8%) in fetal CBMC were also lower than that of neonates (except gammadelta-T cells) and adults. A negative linear correlation (r = -0.609) between the ratio of CD4(+)/CD8(+) T cells in fetal blood and gestation age could also be established. Fetal CBMC showed vigorous spontaneous proliferation but failed to respond to mitogen (PHA) or allogeneic stimulation in vitro. The fetal mononuclear cells were unable to produce IL-2, IL-4 or IFN-gamma, but spontaneously secreted IL-10, IL-6 and TNF-alpha in vitro. Stimulation with PHA up-regulated the production of IL-10, TL-6 and TNF-alpha substantially.
