Abstract Immune system function for rats and hamsters is described, and normal values are given for T-cell exp 3 H-uridine uptake, phytohemagglutinin and concanavalin A-induced lymphocyte mutagenesis in vitro with and without 2-mercaptoethanol addition to the cultures, histologic evaluation of phytohemagglutinin skin testing, T-lymphocyte-dependent cytotoxicity, B-lymphocyte erythrocyte-antibody-complement formation, and B-lymphocyte globulin production mediated hemolytic plaque production. Also included are erythrocyte-antibody-complement rosette values for blood lymphocytes from thymectomized hamsters. A pilot study is described in which Syrian hamsters were exposed to aerosolized spent oil shale (33 mg/l respirable mass) 4.5 h a day, 4 days a wk, for 6 wk. Total white blood cell counts, differential white blood cell counts, red blood cell counts, hematocrits, and hemoglobin determinations in experimental animals did not differ significantly from those of control animals.
