|0096056||Lymphocyte Antigen and Mitogen Proliferation Panel||By report|
|0051571||Cytokine Production by Mononuclear Cells in Response to Mitogen Stimulation, Interleukin 2 (INACTIVE as of 04/04/16)||By report|
|0051572||Cytokine Production by Mononuclear Cells in Response to Mitogen Stimulation, Interleukin 2 Receptor (CD25), Soluble (INACTIVE as of 04/04/16)||By report|
Proliferation results are reported as the mitogen and/or antigen stimulated counts per minute (CPM) and a stimulation index (SI) which represents the ratio of the stimulated lymphocyte CPM to an unstimulated control CPM. Cytokine results are reported in pg/mL.
Results are to be used for research purposes or in attempts to understand the pathophysiology of immune, infectious, or inflammatory disorders.
