mune system will be stud-
ied by Prof. Irun Cohen of
the Weizmann Institute of
Science and Dr. Harmut We-
kerle of the Max Planck In-
stitute of Immunobiology
under a DM 286,500 grant
by the Volkswagenwerk
Foundation. The present re-
search is an outgrowth of
collaborative work original-
ly carried out in 1973 with
Dr. Wekerle, then a fellow
at the Weizmann Institute,
also with Volkswagenwerk
Foundation support.
At that time, Drs. Cohen
and Wekerle established
that the blood of rats con-
tains white blood cells ca-
pable of recognizing the
rat's own fibroblasts, con-
nective tissue cells. This
finding raised the question
of why these self-recogniz-
ing lymphocytes do not rou-
tinely detect these cells and
stimulate the immune sys-
tem to destroy them in an
autoimmune reaction, much
as it would the cells of a
foreign organ transplant or
bacterium?

The researchers think
that the biproducts of nor-
mal bodily "housekeeping"
may create a smokescreen
which blinds lymphocytes,
the immune system's watch-
dog cells. Prof. Cohen ex-
plains that as a result of
normal wear and tear, tis-
sues continually shed bits
and pieces of the body's
own proteins which find
their way into the blood-
stream.
This debris may block the
lymphocyte protein-sensing
receptors and prevents
them from subsequently de-
tecting the "self"-protein in
its complete form. This bar-
rage of soluble fragments
acts much as a broken key
getting caught in a lock and
preventing its operation.
Prof. Cohen and his team
have demonstrated outside
the body that lymphocyte
ability to react with an in-
soluble "self"-protein is se-
verely inhibited by the pres-
ence of the same protein in
a soluble form.
