In this series of experiments we have shown that there are at least two mechanisms of CSF production by spleen cells in vitro: nonspecific secretion of CSF by nonimmune cells and immune, antigen-driven production by specific T-lymphocytes. M-CSF was mainly produced in the nonspecific reaction. The immune production by T-lymphocytes consisted of increased CSF production and secretion of multiple species of CSFs.
