In 1975, Köhler and Milstein immortalized single cells producing monoclonal antibody of defined specificity by fusing them with myeloma cells in continuous culture. Since then, the use of monoclonal antibodies has increased exponentially and provided new insights into the cellular interactions involved in immunoregulation. This review will consider monoclonal antibodies in regards to production, lymphocyte differentiation and nomenclature of surface glycoproteins, the advantages and limitations of measuring peripheral blood lymphocyte subsets in selected diseases, in situ identification of lymphocytes in pathologic tissues and the T-cell dual antigen receptors.
