The humoral and cellular immunological parameters of the New World non-human primate Cebus apella were analysed. The study included: serum protein immunoelectrophoretic analysis; cross reactivity between monkey and human immunoglobulins by immunoprecipitation, ELISA and indirect immunofluorescence tests; immunoglobulin quantitation by radial immunodiffusion; and assays with peripheral blood lymphocytes involving tests for E and EAC rosettes and detection of surface markers (surface immunoglobulins and CD4-CD8 antigens). The results obtained showed that (a) at least three immunoglobulins with electrophoretic mobility corresponding to IgG, IgA and IgM which showed cross reactivity with the human ones were present in serum; (b) it was possible to evaluate the relative monkey immunoglobulin concentration using specific antibodies against human immunoglobulins and to obtain absolute values using adequate conversion factors; (c) lymphocytes forming E and EAC rosettes were found in peripheral blood in a similar proportion to that reported in man; (d) lymphocyte surface immunoglobulins were detected using anti-human immunoglobulin serum; (e) it was not possible to demonstrate the presence of T helper and T suppressor/cytotoxic lymphocytes using OK T4 and OK T8 monoclonal antibodies.
