Nonspecific ¡mmunocompetencein VX2 tumor-bearing rabbits was assessed by skin response to dinitrochloro-benzene and development of antibody titer to bovine serum albumin. Skin reactivity to a 3 M KCI extract of the VX2 and antitumor antibody titer were used to monitor host immunocompetence against the tumor. Rabbits bearing a 15-to 20-ml i.m. VX2 tumor in(More)
