Human lymphocytes proliferate in vitro in response to foreign histocompatibility antigens that are present on allogeneic lymphocytes. Within a population of immunocompetent lymphocytes there are specific subpopulations that respond to allogeneic cells from different individuals. A means of selectively eliminating such subpopulations is suggested.
