The anomalous false‐positive results often found in the primed lymphocyte typing (PLT) test seem to be partially due to the release of blastogenic factor (BF) from the stimulating cell, resulting in back stimulation of the primed lymphocyte. These anomalous responses can be greatly reduced by treating the stimulator cell with high doses of irradiation or with puromycin.
