Lymphocytes of juvenile onset, insulin-dependent diabetics failed to generate suppressor cell activity after preincubation with concanavalin A (Con A). The mean suppression of the autologous proliferative response to phytohemagglutinin (PHA) was 6.1 ± 7.8% (mean ± SEM) in the diabetics and 34.0 ± 4.9% in 9 age-matched healthy controls (p
