Sample text

Patients with HIGMX-1 have normal numbers of circulating B cells that are exclusively surface IgM/IgD positive. Patients with HIGMX-1 do make specific antibodies in response to immunization but they are restricted to the IgM isotype and there is a lack of a memory response (9). Lymph node architecture is abnormal in HIGMX-1 with rare follicles and no germinal centers observed (86). Immunoglobulin isotype switching in human B cells requires a contact-dependent signal from T cells (24). Therefore, HIGMX-1 could result from a defect in either T cells or B cells.
