B-cell and T-cell (combined)

What is B-cell and T-cell (combined)?

B-cell and T-cell (combined) meaning Because a major loss or dysfunction of T cells can cause secondary B-cell deficiency, a number of disorders show clinical manifestations of combined B- and T-cell deficiency, though the only pathology is in the T-cell. In contrast, some diseases appear to primarily involve the T-cells and do not appear to affect antibody production. Those diseases are discussed in T-cell disorders.
