Is there anyone working on T-suppressor cells? Specifically, the patient is a
43-year old female with normal levels of T-helper(T-4), but severely depressed
T-suppressor (T-8) levels. 

other tests revealed:                           Normal
anti-nuclear antibody     1:20			1:40
anti-DNA		  1:10			1:10
anti-thyroglobulin	  1:20			1:20
anti-microsomal		  1:20			1:20
anti-striated muscle	  1:100                 1:20 (abnormal)
total immune complex      81.0			0-50 ug eq/ml (abnormal)
rheumatoid factor	  17.0  		20  IU/ml
IgG Immune complex	  15			0-20 ug eq/ml
IgM Immune complex	  41			0-15 ug eq/ml (abnormal)
IgA Immune complex	  25			0-10 ug eq/ml (abnormal)
IgG Myelin Basic protein  20                    100 ELISA
IgM Myelin basic protein  100                   50  ELISA (abnormal)
IgA Myelin basic protein  20			20  ELISA
IgG Silicone antibody     20			10  ELISA (abnormal)
IgA Silicone antibody     10                    10  ELISA
IgM Silicone antibody     20                    10  ELISA (abnormal)
IgE Silicone antibody     10                    10  Elisa

Also  various fungal IgG antibodies are elevated (6400 versus 01-1600 reference
range), but IgE within normal range (0-100).

Any thoughts, suggestions, or insights are appreciated.
